“Good choice for a memorable day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

Calypso snorkeling is an absolutely wonderful way to explore the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia. The boat is filled with a maximum of 38 people. There are three stops that you get to snorkel at. The coral and fish that you see in the water are amazing! You also learn a lot about certain fish and animals in the water.

Before the boat leaves the marina, you are given a snorkel and a pair of flippers. A few minutes before you arrive at the first stop, you are given a wetsuit or lycra suit depending on what time of the year it is.

The staff is very friendly and helps you if you are having trouble with something.

The lunch was delicious even though it was just a 'make your own sandwich' buffet.

I would recommend this company to people who are looking for a small company to snorkel with, explore the reef with, and learn new things with.

“Thankyou”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

We used this company to visit the Daintree and the Reef. Both trips were excellent! Peter was on both trips and had great knowledge of the rainforest and reef which made the trips more interesting. Everyone on board their new boat Bubbles were super friendly and helpful, and boat wasn't overcrowded. Food was good and plentiful. Thanks for a great experience.

“Perfectly sunny day with amazing tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

I went with Calypso for my first snorkelling experience with my friend, and they did not disappoint. The staff were really helpful and friendly, and the visit to three reef sites definitely worth the money. However, I think the hire fee of the digital camera is a tad bit too expensive, and the lunch buffet could be better.

All in all, it was a pleasant experience.
