Our group of 4 spent 3 nights in Mission Beach, hoping to be able to go diving from here. As Calypso is the only option in the area, we stopped by their office in the afternoon of our arrival and encountered a clueless and unfriendly...More

This particular group was told very clearly that in order to reserve their seats they would be required to pay a deposit. They declined to do this. They were aware that it was a very busy period and that they were informed that if their...More

Unfortunately this is just untrue. The guests were well aware of the cancellation policy, it had been verbally communicated to them and it was on the brochure they used to book the tour. They simply decided to cancel the trip the morning of departure as...More

This is the second time that I have been out with this company and I must say that it was a very enjoyable experience. The first difference was that we met at the Calypso shop and were given wet suits (extra $5), mask and fins...More

We were taken to Ellison Reef on a calm morning with an incoming tide. Trip out was OK. However I was quite disappointed with the reef itself. In my opinion, having scouted quite far from the anchorage, this reef shows significant signs of decay, dieback,...More

One of the best experiences of my life! Only 1 hour's ride from Mission Beach, we stopped and watch whales right next to our boat - the staff must have seen this amazing sight countless times but they were still hugely enthusiastic. The reef itself...More

I went out with Calypso following a dive further South at Airlie Beach with Fantasea. The experience between the two operators could not be more different. Yes the Calypso vessel is not as big or as plush and yes you can get a bumpy ride...More

Once we got to the reef, it was very good. The colours (even on a cloudy day) were spectacular and it was really interesting to see what initially looked like rocks suddenly move. And there were lots of fish. However, we were disappointed with several...More

I dived in the reefs near Cairns, Mission Beach and Whitsunday Islands, and i must admit that Eddy Reef (the one Calypso brings you to) is the best one! It's cheaper than reefcruises in Cairns, the reef is a lot better (not as damaged) and...More
