About Low Isles Half Day Tours - Calypso

Morning & afternoon Low Isles tours

Morning & afternoon Low Isles tours

Snorkel in the calm lagoon of Low Isles with a maximum of 23 guests either in the early morning or afternoon* with Calypso Reef Cruises. Arriving at Low Isles approximately 30 minutes after departing The Reef Marina, guests snorkel in the calm lagoon exploring the reef and its inhabitants without the crowds.

Our comfortable vessel travels to Low Isles with small groups and guests have a similar amount of time at the island as full day tours. Two and a half hours to snorkel, view the reef via a glass bottom boat and walk through the vegetation on the island** seeing 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.

Accessing the reef is very easy, either from the back of the vessel or from the beach as the reef hugs close to the island.

This tour is perfect for visitors who have limited time and want to explore the picturesque Low Isles on the Great Barrier Reef.

*During the off season, our Low Isles tours may be reduced to one departure per day.

**Due to some weather conditions, it may not be possible to access the island. Please contact us for more information.

Low Isles Half Day Tours - Calypso Reviews


Aimi Horne

Just had a fantastic trip out to low Isles, great trip for small children and snorkeling off the island provided plenty to see for first timers and less confident swimmers. Got to swim with a turtle which was amazing. Next time, we'll brave the outer reef. Thanks for the adventure.

We went for a snorkel tour yesterday with Calypso. Not only was it amazing but the staff/ crew was friendly and very knowledgeable about the reef. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone! Plus, the fact that it was the most competitive price was an added bonus. Thank you for this beautiful experience Calypso!
