We travelled with Calypso cruises to Low Ailses for snorkelling. The crew were professional, caring and knowledgeable. They accommodated to all needs and ages. They ensured that everyone was comfortable with snorkelling and made sure they were around if there were any issues. Truly spectacular.

When we booked our reef tour they picked us up at our hotel in Port Douglas (Ramada Port Douglas) as part of the fee. I’m not too sure that they go all the way into Cairns but you could enquire via phone?

You will be able to book when your arrive. We booked a fortnight out and I would suggest doing that to ensure getting a seat.
