Such a fun day
This was my first time snorkeling and I had a blast. My crew for the day was Dom, Sarah, Matty, and Tom, and they were all 100% lovely! They gave us stinger suits (for jellyfish), all the snorkel materials we needed, and noodles to help us float along. At one of the locations, Matty even swam down to get a sea cucumber for us to touch. I had such a fun day. I definitely recommend using Travstar and Calypso!

Small dedicated group was terrific.
Fantastic! All the team try to ensure that you have the special experience and enjoyment of the reef no matter what your snorkelling abilities are. Would definitely go with Calypso again, and the small dedicated group was terrific.

The reef sites we went out to were amazing.
The reef sites we went out to were amazing. We were allowed enough time to explore the reef. The talks on the reef were also very informative and interesting. The staff were friendly and helpful Do feel that people should be encouraged not to wear sunblock on the reef, but rather to cover up - we do want to protect it for future generations. As I have coeliac my choices were limited as far as the food provided goes. Otherwise a really fantastic trip, would recommend it to everybody
