From WWII minesweeper to dream of the south sea
The Calypso was a present from the Irish Guinness brewery to the underwater researcher. Cousteau equipped it with a helipad and used the cranes for launching his Zodiac boats, submarines, shark cages and other equipment. Inside, there was space for lab work. And the ship was a permanent film set. Cousteau produced more than 100 movies, bringing the dream of the South Sea into every living room.
