Low Isles Half Day Tours - Calypso

From AUD


Join us for 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.

Our 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 our 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.

On our two departures daily*, guests can access the island** and explore the sandy paths winding through the vegetation. See first hand the historical Lighthouse, the Lighthouse Keeper's home and the Weather Station where local weather data is collected. 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.

Guests make their own way to Crystalbrook Marina for their scheduled departure. Drinks and snacks can be purchased using cash on board (sorry no credit card facilities available).
