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.
Departs Port Douglas at 7:30am & Returns at 11:30am
*During the off season, these 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.
