Calypso’s Cruise to Tortuga Island

After a 1 ½ hour drive from San José to the dock in Puntarenas and a pit stop for a scrumptious breakfast in route, you will board the 71-foot Catamaran Manta Raya for an unforgettable trip to Tortuga Island (Turtle Island).

Tortuga is an island paradise with white sand beaches, coconut palms and a beautiful clear blue ocean, all located in the Golf of Nicoya on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. En route to Tortuga, as you cruise along the calm waters of the Gulf of Nicoya there is always a possibility of spotting dolphins, sea turtles and aquatic birds.

Once at Tortuga Island you can bask in the gorgeous white sand beaches, take a swim in the inviting blue ocean, walk on the adventurous island trails or take an optional tour before enjoying a succulent lunch served with chilled white wine and live marimba music.

The Manta Raya has an expansive deck area where you can talk with friends or make new friends, as well as fresh water showers and a bow ramp allowing an easy disembarkation directly onto the beach.

Estimated Departure from San José: 6:00 am Estimated Return to San José: 8:00 pm
