Best day

Best day! Intimate experience with only 10 guests and 3 Calypso staff members on the entire island/low isles reef. Island is gorgeous, very picturesque and quiet. Snorkelling was fun. The boat was clean and comfortable. Staff members were lovely, friendly and there to ensure we had fun but also safe. Got to swim with baby sharks, turtles and fish!

The cruise was very rushed and expansive for what we received

The cruise was very rushed and expansive for what we received. The tour guides seemed to have limited knowledge of the island, reef and Australia generally. Nice scenery, but disappointed when we arrived to snorkel as the island as it was overrun with tourists.
