Absolutely fantastic day
, Aug 2021
Snorkeling at 3 different reef sites was absolutely fantastic. Crew professional & humerous. Food very good & I was given vegan food I had noted on my booking. Highly recommend Galypso.
Great day on the reef
, Jul 2021
Great day out on the reef. The staff are positive helpful and committed to making sure you enjoy the day. The boat was in good nick - clean with everything working. The snorkeling gear was likewise in good nick - very important. There was plenty of morning and after tea as was the case with lunch. Didn’t see any prawns though! The three snorkel sites were good with a good diversity of reef life. Unfortunately for us the day was overcast so not the best day for a reef excursion but the grey weather was well compensated for by the positiveness of the staff. If up this way again we would certainly use Calypso again. Well done Calypso team.

We loved everything about the day. Close to 3 hours of snorkelling in total at 3 different locations. We really enjoyed the marine biology presentation and the snorkelling tour. All the staff were friendly.

Great experience. We are not good swimmers and the instructors went out of their way to take care of us. Michelle was wonderful and took me down diving twice, both 1 on 1. Highly recommend this tour

Amazing Experience!

This is a must do tour when in Port Douglas! The team were so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We were taken to three snorkel sights (one of which included a guided snorkel with one of the team). We were lucky enough to see turtles and reef sharks! Highly recommend :)
