Calypso Reef Tours offer a range of snorkelling and scuba diving tours at three great dive sites on the Outer Barrier Reef. The Calypso is a stylish 25 metre (82 ft) catamaran that has been purpose built for snorkelling and scuba diving on the outer Great Barrier Reef.
As well as offering space and comfort aboard the vessel, including day-bed style seating in the outdoor areas and a fantastic fly deck three floors above the water, the Calypso has a dive platform that makes it super easy to get in and out of the water. It’s something you will appreciate once you are out there.
This family owned operator takes great pride in the level of service provided by the crew. You will definitely feel very well looked after from start to finish. Introductory and Certified scuba diving is offered along with Snorkelling so even if you have never scuba dived before, the Dive Instructors aboard Calypso will give you the training you need to have your first dive.
Between the second and third spectacular reef sites the Calypso will treat you to a tropical buffet lunch followed by interpretive presentations from the crew. Morning and afternoon teas are also provided.
The Calypso has a roving permit which gives it access to the reef from Port Douglas all the way up to Lizard Island. For this reason it makes a great private charter option if you have a special occasion in mind. Ask us for more information if you are interested in a private charter.
If you are planning to Snorkel on Calypso and would like to do a Daintree tour, consider our Calypso/Daintree Package and SAVE $20 per person.
Calypso sells underwater camera’s, hats, t-shirts, postcards and PADI logbooks on board. GoPro’s can also be hired. Soft drinks, Beer, Wine and Sparkling wine can be purchased.
This tour departs the Reef Marina at 8.45am and returns you to Port Douglas at 4.15pm.
