Exploring the Great Barrier Reef in comfort and style is easy with Calypso on custom designed vessels that travel daily from Port Douglas to Opal and Agincourt Reefs.

Snorkelling and diving the Great Barrier Reef is an adventure. Exploring the coral gardens in search for weird and wonderful marine creatures will keep you busy for hours. Three sites are visited in one day, providing an insight into this large, unique and extraordinary living organism that is the Great Barrier Reef.

Made up of four separate reefs that face out to the South Pacific Ocean, Agincourt Reef is regarded as one of the most significant sites of this natural wonder. Explore rich, diverse coral gardens that help form these protective ocean walls, filled with hard and soft corals as well as the reef’s most iconic species such as sharks, stingrays, turtles, groupers and cods, maori wrasse and parrotfish. During Whale Season (June to September) you may be lucky enough to see Humpback or Minke Whales frolicking in the warm waters of the reef.

Snorkelling is included in the cost of your day trip, but if you wish to add a little more adventure, consider an add-on Scuba dive. While everyone can snorkel, those who would like to explore the reef from a fishes perspective can do so with no experience of diving necessary with an INTRODUCTORY DIVE. For those who have a love for exploring the depths of the oceans, Calypso offers CERTIFIED DIVING (certification cards are required) and up to three dives can be completed each day.

The Great Barrier Reef is a truly amazing spectacle and to get the best possible experience, you need to be in the hands of experts, people who know the reef like their own backyard. If you want a personal reef experience then blissfully Calypso will provide it.

Calypso offers family cruises, reef tours, and dive trips to the Great Barrier Reef for snorkelling and scuba diving. Our reef trip is suitable for all ages and provides a unique and personalised experience for all guests.
