Top Tips

Experience the beautiful Great Barrier Reef with a snorkel and dive cruise departing Port Douglas. Aboard a luxurious, stylish and comfortable catamaran, you'll venture out from the mainland to one of the best reefs in the region, Agincourt Reef. This reef is regarded as one of the best and most significant sites in the entire Great Barrier Reef and with this day cruise you'll be able to head below the surface and explore one of them for yourself.

You'll be treated to a full day of adventure, relaxation and education, with interpretive reef talks and guided snorkel tours included in the day tour. You'll also be given access to all snorkelling equipment, wetsuits, lycra suits and prescription masks as well as being treated to tea and coffee throughout the day and morning tea, a tropical buffet lunch and afternoon tea on board the vessel.

If snorkelling isn't enough, you can get kitted up and venture into the deeps with a diving expedition (optional extra), for a more in-depth look at the chosen reef for the day.

Tours depart the Reef Marina in Port Douglas at 8:45am and return at 4:30pm, so you'll have an entire day exploring the reef and cruising around this beautiful part of the world. If you're looking for an awesome day out on the Great Barrier Reef with food and equipment included, then this snorkel and dive cruise is the way to go!

Highly recommend Calypso Reef Cruises!! My partner and I had one of the best days exploring the reef. It was absolutely stunning! Also the staff were so lovely, fun and accommodating and provided great insights. The day was planned out so well and ran seamlessly. Would 100% recommend and would do the tour again myself.

Great to see a beautiful part of the amazing Great Barrier Reef

Great to see a beautiful part of the amazing Great Barrier Reef! Calypso ten is a great cruise and the crew is so good! They made it (and yes I’ll use the word again) an amazing day! Special thanks to Marc, my Dive Master, made 3 great dives with him. Book this cruise with Calypso for a great experience!

Great company to do the outer reef with

Great company to do the outer reef with. Pickup and drop off at the hotel, comfortable vessel and well organized with divers/snorkelers. Equipment provided was in good condition and the lunch plentiful along with endless tea, coffee, snacks. Highly recommended.

Instructions were very good

Instructions were very good. In regards to safety. The trip can be affected by lots of snorkelling causing overcrowding. I was told not to take my stinger suit off even though I was talking it off as I was coming out of the water. The scuba instructor was very stern about getting his scuba people in the water and doesn’t treat the other snorkelers as paying customers. Another boat broke down so we had to assist them. It is a young crowd who is employed. The captain is not friendly but seems very competent. Lunch was mostly eaten prior to me getting it because there was no warning about when it was served when you are snorkelling. So I did not see anything different from other trips. Thanks!

Absolutely value for money

Absolutely value for money. It was our first time to do snorkelling and we loved it so much. As one of us was a weak swimmer, we were a bit nervous before the cruise. Before snorkelling, they provided her with a life jacket and snorkelling mask was marked with red tape so that the staff could recognise where she was in the ocean. Additionally, the staff instructed her in the ocean until she was comfortable and confident with being in the water! Thanks to their support we were able to enjoy it without any fear! Great staff, fabulous snorkelling and cruise as well as plenty of food & snacks. Highly recommended.

Calypso cruise was so good they looked after us so well

Calypso cruise was so good they looked after us so well. Having 2 infants with us was not easy but all the staff made it so comfortable for the entire family. We requested for a vegetarian meal and it was catered beautifully with enough quantity. I would strongly recommend to book through Experience Oz and find great deals!

Our experience was great

Our experience was great! We got picked up from our hostel in the morning and taken to the port. We were then greeted at the boat by Michelle who was very friendly and helpful. We then got on board and Kelsi fitted us with our snorkelling equipment and did our brief. We then headed out to Opal reef after our biscuits and tea. The boat ride was great, a little choppy to start with due to the weather but was fine on the open water. We had 3 snorkelling sites around Opal reef, even though the weather was grey and cloudy, we still saw hundreds of fish at each site. The sun did peak through the clouds at the 2nd site which made the reef look incredible! We were also greeted by Murray the local humphead wrasse who came and said hello! Dan was great, really funny and even took us on a tour around the reef and pointed out different species of fish and coral. Kelsi was great too and helped us equalise properly so I could dive down underwater. We were also lucky enough to see not only one, but two reef sharks and the white tip reef shark was within 5m of us! We even got it on our underwater camera! Epic! Lunch was great a good selection of food and after our final snorkel, the brownies were even better! Overall the day was amazing!
