    Traveller Tips

    The water is very murky and stirred up so you really can't see much through the glass, be sure to bring some flip flops or water shoes, the Island is VERY coarse and hurts your feet.

    Awesome half day outing!!!
    Nick_O, June 2023
    Seeing the reef sharks as we first arrived and also while we snorkelled. Crew was fantastic and friendly.
    Best family outing
    Diane_C, May 2023
    Even though the weather was not great, rain and 25 km winds, and a very rough trip out to Low Isles. The crew were very attentive to passengers needs, very informative and the best snorkelling experience we could ask for given the bad weather. Highly recommend
    Unforgettable experience!
    Riley_W, May 2023
    Unforgettable experience! Tailored to everyone. Amazing to be able to snorkel right off the beach and still be able to see amazing things! Staff were incredible and super welcoming.
    Low isles
    Tracey_M, May 2023
    Low isles Island is a beautiful place to spend half a day. We did the snorkelling tour with Lilly who was very informative and we saw heaps of sea life and coral. Phoebe took us on a tour of the island which was also informative and great to learn about the low isles. The captain jorg kept us safe through the rough waters. There were are few people (including myself) who got sea sick and the crew were very caring and assisted us to ensure we felt as best as possible. Great tour to go on and would definitely recommend
    Not to be missed

    Best experience
    Margie_T, May 2023
    I have never snorkelled before. The staff were very informative, calm and gave great advice. Made the experience stress free and so relaxing. This experience has now given me more insight of what it’s like to be under water and to feel like you’re in another world. I now would love to experience scuba diving which I will do in the future. This is thanks to the staff for their guidance

    Wonderful trip to the Low Isles! Trip out was bumpy due to rough seas but once there it was beautiful. Staff was very informative and helpful. Really enjoyed our day and would highly recommend.
    Calypso Low Isles an absolute must 👍🏝️👍👍
    David_H, Apr 2023
    Fantastic day. Amazing coral. Turtles fish sharks. Lily was a fantastic guide around the coral. Pete gave a great tour of the island and lighthouse. I couldn’t recommend these guys at calypso more. Our captain Jorg delivered us to and from the island.
    Amazing 1/2 day experience!
    Elisa_M, Mar 2023

    The experience was wonderful! The crew was so friendly and knowledgeable. We loved snorkeling and everything was explained so well. The island tour was very interesting
    A fantastic family experience!
    Catherine_L, Mar 2023
    This is a fantastic tour. We enjoyed it so much we have done it twice. Unlike other operators we saw, the tour group is smaller making for a more personal experience. Being able to snorkel off the beach was great for the kids. We were shown such incredible marine life by very knowledgeable guides who showed great passion and respect for the environment. Wonderful!

    Xiaoying_Z, Jan 2023
    The crews (Mark, Fletcher and another guy) are very professional and very friendly. Our kids are 10 and 12 years old with average swimming skill. You don't need to swim very fast to spot the turtles and reef shark. They even show you around the island and the lighthouse. The afternoon tea on the way back is really a bonus for the kids. Highly recommended to traveler with kids.
    Early morning cruise
    Angela_F, Nov 2022
    Enjoyed the small early morning group the three crew members were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Coral reef and marine life were stunning combined with the walk round the island. Definitely a worthwhile trip.

    Anne_P, July 2022
    It was a rainy chilly day not great for a day on a tropical island, but the coral the fish and swimming with a turtle were fabulous! I loved the day to the Low Islands.

    Trish_P, June 2022
    Great reef experience although the weather was a little rough on our trip. The crew were fabulous and very well organized and courteous. We saw plenty of turtles and were back in Port Douglas before lunch with the rest of the day to relax.
