After morning pickup at your Port Douglas accommodation, transfer to the marina for check-in.

When your boat departs, your guide provides a safety briefing and introduction to the day's activities, and scuba divers are briefed about the dive sites.

Custom built snorkel-only vessels allow access to renowned sites at Opal and Tongue Reefs. If you want to go diving, introductory divers are placed in groups of four with a PADI Dive Instructor. Certified divers dive in groups of up to seven people accompanied by PADI Dive Masters. Scuba diving is at an additional charge.

Around 10am, arrive at your first dive site at either Opal or Agincourt Reef. Have time to snorkel and enjoy morning tea before moving on to the second site before noon. Guided snorkel tours are optional at the second site. Have lunch on board the boat, then listen to an interpretive talk about the Great Barrier Reef.

Move to the third site of the day at 1:30pm, and take the optional guided snorkel tour, then nibble your afternoon tea afterwards. At 3pm, depart for the mainland, returning to the marina about 4:15pm. Your tour ends with transfer back to your accommodation in the late afternoon.

Every location of the Barrier Reef is a GEM! The Calypso crew members are very well organized, friendly and professional. Good snorkelling equipment. Would go definitely again, if i had the time!To the visitor: the sea ride can be rough. Be prepared To the management: Just a friendly note - office business stuff like work schedules and payments are discussed on the boat and they shouldn't!

Simply a fantastic trip that has got to be on your must do list, the crew were fantastic looking after all the passengers regardless of age or snorkelling experience. Once we were on the reef the fish played there part and showed up in abundance in size shape and colour even a few reef sharks turned up. We snorkeled on 3 sites and all 3 were excellent, the crew even did a guided snorkelling tour showing us things we may have missed. All in all just a superb days snorkelling, a massive thank you to every on involved especially the crew.

Best snorkeling experience of my many experiences throughout the world. Going to three reefs was wonderful - each was different. It was well organized and the time just flew by.
