We took the Calypso to snorkel. Crew was great, but we didnt see much fish life where we went., because water was to choppy to go where was was supposed. Water was very clear and warm

My husband and I had a great day on Calypso Outer Reef. From the meet & greet to the final farewell, we cannot fault it. The dives were great, food very good and the equipment spot on! Well worth it!

Well priced and good value a whole day out on the water with three snorkel experiences. The staff put customer safety first and provided guidance, supervision and great local knowledge. This is a great day trip and value for money.

Great crew, friendly and approachable taking us to a fabulous location. Kids really enjoyed a couple of hours in the water snorkeling. Saw giant clams up close and a myriad of fish.
