Excellent day out. This is the perfect "Reef tour" if you are not a good swimmer or confident in the water! The staff were excellent and attentive and made the whole experience so much more enjoyable !! Would highly recommend calypso and tropical journeys!!!

Getting to the great Barrier Reef was a lifetime bucket list item. Being with our kids, we snorkeled rather than scuba dive. This company was excellent to work with.

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
