Company

CALYPSOAZORES YACHT CHARTER (Calypso - Actividades Marítimo Turísticas, Unipessoal, Lda), is a very young and dynamic company born out our passion for the sea and the dream of being able to show and share, not only the beauties of our precious Graciosa island, but the Azores itself. 

Our deepest respect for the great captain and oceanographer Jacques-Yves Custeau, who crossed the oceans commanding the famous Calypso, was the source of inspiration when choosing the name for this project. This is our way to pay tribute to this man, who loved the sea and was by far the most notorious undersea explorer of the 20th century.

Specialized mostly on sea and land tourism activities, we started our business in April 2013 and later in September 14th 2015 opened  our Nautic Shop.

Our Vision

Our main goal is the promotion and development of sustainable tourism, focused on direct contact with Mother Nature, revealing the unique beauty of the Azores, providing, at the same time, a unforgettable holiday.

Graciosa, one of Archipelago's most beautiful islands, holds a stunning coastal landscape. The abundance of migratory birds completes the huge variety of shore fauna that always fascinates our visitors. We provide leisure activities of your choice, making your stay an incomparable experience. Choose a nautical experience of your preference, from free diving and snorkelling, to cetacean observation, bird watching, boat trips and sport fishing. On land we provide multiple activities such as pick-up 4X4 tours, bike tours, horse riding, trails and organized visits to museums and other interesting places.

CALYPSO AZORES - YACHT CHARTER is committed to cooperate with the Autonomous Region of Azores developing, operating and marketing tourism in a sustainable manner, preferably exploring aspects that will make a positive impact to the natural and cultural environment and can generate benefits for the host communities, without putting at risk the future livelihood of local people.

Our Policy

Despite the tourism contribution to the prosperity of local economies, chances are that negative impacts on the economy, environment, nature, social structures and local cultures could arise.

Sustainable Ecotourism is our guideline concept for the management of our business. Knowing that Sustainable Ecotourism is crucial to preserve the natural environment, we expect to raise awareness and active involvement among our customers towards the natural, social and cultural environment of the places they will visit.
