The Calypso Cruise was nice, relaxing, with a tour and history of the island. We sailed to the La Petite Auberge in Marigot (on the French side) for dinner. It was a quaint and not fancy restaurant but the food was the best French food I have ever tasted. We were served a three course meal which was included in... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip to St Martin. The cruise took us under the new bridge where we ducked! We went through the marina with views of the big yachts and sailboats. The dinner was a three course price fixe with a glass of wine. We enjoyed the dinner and the cruise with open bar.

We had a great time! Junior and Odie were awesome! I highly recommend this adventure! The onboard drinks were great. The night was perfect for a boat ride. They did a great job of providing information about the island while we rode to Marigot. The highlight of the night was the dinner! I would definitely recommend!

This dinner cruise was very enjoyable, met some nice people, open bar and the food was really good too. The two guys made sure everyone always had a drink and worked hard to see that we had everything we needed.

We had a wonderful time on the Calypso but the highlight of the night was the wonderful dinner. We had booked for Tuesday but were rained out so the Captain opened up a Thursday cruise for us. Only 10 people so not crowded and well serviced cruise through the lagoon. The restaurant gave three options for dinner and appetizer and... More

The calypso tour is a fine tour of the inner harbor, with a dinner at a small French restaurant in the Marigot Harbor. The boat tour is fine, and the meal was ok, however the meal was ruined by the disgusting smells of raw sewage in the harbor. This is not the fault of the tour company, however I cannot... More

My sister and I spent the week of September 22-26th in Simpson Bay on vacation. We took the Calypso Cruise excursion on Tuesday September 23rd. We were both excited along with friends we had met during the week as this was the only excursion we were planning on taking. The boat ride to the restaurant was on a party barge... More

Very enjoyable evening. $75 each for a cruise around Simpson Lagoon and dinner. Cruise was enjoyable with attentive server offering rum punch and other drinks. Unfortunately, you dock at the restaurant before you see the sunset. But you are right in front of the restaurant which ended up being the best meal we had during our stay. Food was great!... More

We chose the Calypso Dinner Cruise, run by Aqua Mania Adventures because it combines a sunset boat trip across the marina with dinner at a restaurant in Marigo. Other trips seemed more of a party boat. The evening was beautiful and the guides are fun and knowledgeable about the boats in the marinas. They serve rum punch and soft drinks... More
