Snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef is one of the most incredible experiences a person can enjoy. With much of the reef's colour and marine life visible within a couple of metres of the water's surface, snorkelling offers all swimmers, regardless of their skill level, the opportunity to see this diverse eco-system up close.
Float effortlessly over rich, colourful coral gardens teeming with life from the cute and playful clownfish to the graceful beauty of the green turtle. Giant clams, stingrays, maori wrasse, cods and colourful parrotfish, are just some of the hundreds of species you will encounter during your visit to Opal Reef with Calypso.
Proudly locally owned and operated, Calypso Reef Cruises has dedicated snorkel vessels to visit the outer Great Barrier Reef and with three fantastic sites to explore, you will be busy for hours.
Join a snorkelling experience at a secluded island at the best times of day....early morning and afternoon. Arriving at Low Isles after a 30 minute journey, guests will explore the coral reef and its inhabitants without the crowds.
The comfortable vessel travels to Low Isles with only 23 guests and allows approximately 2.5 hours to snorkel and explore this picturesque coral cay, a similar amount of time as some full day tours have at the island. Snorkel in the calm lagoon or view the reef from the glass bottom boat, Calypso's crew will provide tours for guests to learn and appreciate the incredible Great Barrier Reef. Access to the reef is very easy, either from the back of the vessel or from the beach as the reef hugs close to the island.
With two departures daily, guests can access the island and explore the sandy paths winding through the vegetation. Bird life found here is spectacular, with many sea birds breeding and nesting in the vegetation and on the ground.
This tour is perfect for visitors who have limited time and want to explore the picturesque Low Isles on the Great Barrier Reef.
Combine some of the best experiences in the region.
Spend your morning snorkelling the soft coral gardens at Low Isles, spot some turtles from the glass bottom boat or just relax on the island and soak up the sun.
The take to the air with GBR Helicopters for either a reef or rainforest discovery, 30 minute scenic flight.
