Tortuga Island is famous for her sugar white sand beach, swaying giant palm trees and crystal clear turquoise water. This tiny island, located in the Gulf of Nicoya, displays the Bandera Azul or Blue Ecological Flag earned from the Costa Rican Tourist Board (ICT), where you can see a variety of flora and fauna.

Calypso Cruises created the "world famous" Calypso Island Cruise to Tortuga Island in 1975. After their first visit to Costa Rica, while on a sport fishing trip, David and Cecelia Reid, the owners and founders of Calypso, saw Tortuga Island for the first time. Tortuga Island was uninhabited and an island discovery they wanted to show to the world. It was then the idea of an island cruise was born. Since the first cruise, Calypso has escorted more than 1 million happy passengers on the tour Calypso made world famous.
