Sea journeys

Calypso Cruises invites you to explore Mount Athos and the rest treasures of the magical Halkidiki by sea.

From the centuries-old Byzantine monasteries of Mount Athos designated UNESCO World Heritage site – where the entrance to women is forbidden to the endless beaches, exotic uninhabited islands and isolated coves, there are certain places that must be enjoyed by sea to truly experience Halkidiki.

Our intimate and never-crowded cruises introduce you to the heart of Mount Athos’ spirituality and peacefulness while our swimming excursions offer you the chance to experience some of the most amazing beaches, islands and crystal waters of Halkidiki.

Our Ship

Calypso is more than just a ship; its name too has a mesmerising story to tell. It is inspired by the Greek Mythology nymph Calypso, a goddess of strange power and beauty. According to the myth Calypso was inhabiting the island of Ogygia, on the coast of which Odysseus was thrown when he was shipwrecked. Calypso loved the unfortunate hero, and promised him eternal youth and immortality if he would remain with her. She detained him in her island for seven years, until at length she was obliged by the gods to allow him to continue his journey homewards.

Our boat is built in 2016 with all the standards of safety and comfort, and designed specifically for the places we visit. Calypso offers comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces for our beloved passengers and provides an exceptional cruise experience tailored to the unparalleled wonders of Mount Athos and Halkidiki.
