we've had a great day of snorkelling around the great barrier reef. The whole day is really well organized. The crew knows what they are doing. They probably do this on a daily basis, but they are still really enthousiast and do not mind answering all our questions. We've had a really nice day and of course seen a lot... More

This was an amazing day out to the Outer Reef, the crew were helpful and made the experience really enjoyable. We went to 3 dive sights and they just got better and better as the day went on. Great value for money. The boat ride was smooth and had great facilities on board, including air conditioning under deck which was... More

The calypso team was friendly and helpful. Our children did the introductory diving and liked it very much being accompained by really helpful diving instructors. And the reef itself. you can't describe the images you must do this tour by yourself!

This was our first snorkelling trip out to the Great Barrier Reef and chose Calypso Adventure because it was a small boat only catering for up to 12 guests. It turned out to be a good choice because the two locations where we stopped to swim were superb and of course uncrowded. For our trip we had Chrissy and Seán... More

We booked this while in Port Douglas in October. We are keen snorkelers and the fact that there was a maximum group of twelve really appealed to us. It wasn't the cheapest at $250pp but we felt sure it would be worth it. We arrived at 9.15am prompt as instructed and Andy did a briefing before we left port. We... More

Calypso Adventure provided the perfect first experience of the wonders of the barrier reef. The snorkling/dive instructor Chrissey was fantastic in provided a safe and supportive environment for novices. Small number of people on a small boat ensured personalised attention and maximum time in the water. Andy's knowledge and stories kept us well entertained.

We have been out to the reef from Port Douglas several times with different operators but had a GREAT day out with Calypso Adventures. The overall experience was a personal one (they take no more than 12 guests on board) we enjoyed the cruise out to the reef in a very comfortable boat, snorkelled at two different and interesting locations...

I've been out on the reef before but was still scared this time around, Chrissy my dive instructor held my hand the whole time and made me feel very comfortable. It was a wonderful experience and I got to see things I didn't get to see on my other trip because small groups give them the possibility to spend extra... More

If your in Port Douglas and are looking for a personal service for a day out snorkelling or an introductory dive on the reef these are the guys to book with, no more than 12 on the boat visiting a couple of reefs and lunch thrown in as well. We had the best day ever with Andy the 'skipper' and... More

Cancelled our trip with NO notice, then when we complained the manager was rude and arrogant and kept our money!! This guy should be wearing an eye patch and a parrot, a complete con man.
