Calypso Adventures on the Great Barrier Reef
Great Barrier Reef diving, snorkelling or jet skiing with Calypso Adventures will be the highlight of your trip to Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Snorkel, dive, jet ski, relax in the sun and admire the beautiful scenery of one of our natural wonders of the world. From first-time snorkellers and divers to experienced wreck divers, our team offers individual attention, absolute adventure and unsurpassed value for money. All of our dive sites are chosen to suit snorkellers as well as divers. We can boast the best the Great Barrier Reef has to offer.
Our dive boats depart from the mainland point of Mission Beach and from Dunk Island. This gives us and you an immediate benefit over rival Cairns dive companies in that our travel time to the outer Great Barrier Reef is just over one hour as opposed to two from Cairns. This means more time diving and snorkelling on the reef when we get there.
Our chosen reefs boast an average of 80% live coral cover compared to 40% which is the average for the Great Barrier Reef. With our very own on-board Reef Conservation Official our crew educate guests to appreciate our invaluable marine life and enforce the importance of its protection. We recognise the importance of maintaining the beauty of our reefs for generations to come and are to this end are involved with the Project AWARE Foundation.
Our Great Barrier Reef dive sites suit all levels from the experienced, scuba diving the exciting Lady Bowen ship wreck at 34 metres, to introductory scuba divers having the opportunity to enter into our amazing underwater world. Snorkellers will discover small creatures hiding between the corals as well as interact with an abundance of marine life. Calypso Adventures provide free snorkelling lessons and floatation devices to maximise your experience at our unspoilt sites. If swimming isn’t your thing then you are in for a treat during the months of May to August anyway as we go whale watching on our trips out to the reef. During these months Dwarf Minke Whales and Humpback Whales migrate up the coast to their breeding grounds on the Great Barrier Reef. Seeing a full grown Humpback breach out of the water is a truly awe-inspiring sight.
If you prefer to stay above the water we offer jet ski tours around Dunk Island, transfers from the mainland to Dunk Island via jet ski, jet ski hire on Dunk Island, and private charter jet ski tours on our Yamaha Waverunner jet skis which can carry up to 3 passengers.
