Loved every moment aboard Calypso! Boat is comfortable and spacious, great selection of fresh food and the crew were professional and very helpful throughout the entire experience. A special mention to our dive instructor Jason who did a fantastic job of taking us through our very first dive, keeping us safe and being a very responsible instructor who was also... More

This was an amazing day for us! Saw three different reef spots which was great as we had a young baby so my husband and I could take turns. The reef was fabulous, food was nice and the staff were amazing. Would definitely do again!

As first time snorkellers we were nervous but the crew put us at ease and with their help we did it. Seeing a turtle was the biggest thrill. The boat and equipment were immaculate. Only wish we did the full day trip.

Our reef cruise began by a punctual pickup at our hotel by Jason and a transfer to the Calypso yacht in the marina. Once aboard, Jason #2 explained the day as Lisa (skipper) got underway and we cruised out to the reef. We had three 1 hour snorkel stops punctuated by morning tea, then lunch and finally afternoon tea. The... More

We spent a day out on the Great Barrier Reef. Calypso are a friendly, professional outfit who made this an unforgettable day. Three different diving sites, informative and helpful staff. Nice food. Highly recommended even if you are a bit unsure about snorkelling.

Day trip to the reef. Visited three locations on Opal Reef. Best experiences on first and third stops didn't want to get out of water at last spot so much still to see. Staff on boat excellent helpful and constantly on hand to assist with any needs. All equipment needed supplied and buffet meal for lunch very good. Catered for... More

We had the most amazing day out on the reef with Calypso. They take you out to three different locations throughout the day so definitely worth the visit! It was the most beautiful day out on the reef. Even though it was stinger season, they provided us with wet suits so was very convenient. They also provided us with a... More

We made the trip from cairns to port Douglas to take a trip out to the reef in expectation that the argincourt reef being on the continental shelf would have a large array of fish and sharks. We were sadly mistaken and only ended up seeing small fish, which mostly were parrot fish. We listened to the staff tell us... More

Nice boat, friendly staff. Calypso is able to go to both Opal and Tongue Reef off of Port Douglas. We also went out with Quicksilver off Port Douglas. Both companies are great with similar boats, similar programs, but different reefs. We did not like the diving/snorkeling off Cairns to the south as much as we liked Port Douglas.
