There can be few words left to describe that moment when you actually dip your head under the water and witness Australia's Great Barrier Reef for the first time. It's a bit like you've stepped uninvited into an impossibly colourful underwater world where sea life is busily going about its business just like it has for thousands of years.

There's no getting around it. The Great Barrier Reef is a truly amazing spectacle and to get the best possible experience, you need to be in the hands of experts, people who know the reef like their own back yard. If you want a personal reef experience then blissfully Calypso will provide it.
