THANK YOU TROPICAL JOURNEYS!!! We had an amazing day out on "Calypso" visiting the Opal Reef. The whole day was a magnificent experience, from the time we left until our return. Lisa, the Skipper, and other staff, Steve, Dan, Charni and Kate were all amazing......professional, friendly, helpful and fun. Because I could not snorkel, due to an ear problem, I... More

Great trip out to low isles only 30 minutes from Port Douglas on the boat. Glass bottom boat tour and snorkelling off the beach. We went with a group of families with young kids and it was the perfect trip. Highly recommend. Staff were friendly and helpful

A brilliant day spent snorkelling 3 spots with the Calypso. The boat crew were great, they really added to the day making sure it was fun and full of information. A warm thanks to Ashleigh, Dan, Martin and the Skipper, a great crew. We visited Opal and Toungue reefs, the water warm and inviting and full of wonders to see.... More

I booked our tour on line as part of our holiday to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. We took this outer reef tour a couple of years ago and loved it then, so .. When you're on a good thing ..... We were not disappointed this time either. Great boat ('Bubbles'), great staff/crew and great gear and reef locations. My... More

I loved seeing the fish and the coral - that was wonderful. I could have spent a lot longer in the water so if I went again I think I would choose a company that goes to fewer sites but spends longer at each (I had tried but everything was booked). I was always disappointed when I had to get... More

This boat held around 50, half of whom were doing scuba. Our trip took us to three spots on Agincourt Reef (“Nobody’s Reef”, “Stonehenge”... More
