Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Agincourt Reef is a fantastic base for discovering the outer Great Barrier Reef, featuring a permanently moored pontoon for easy underwater exploration. Your full-day adventure begins with a 1.5-hour high-speed catamaran cruise to the edges of the reef. During the voyage, relax on the sun decks, take morning tea and watch a snorkeling demonstration.

When you arrive at Agincourt, splash into the water from a submerged platform to snorkel among tropical fish and coral gardens using provided snorkeling equipment. If you prefer to stay dry, you can still explore the world-famous reef from an underwater observatory or with an included semi-submersible boat tour.

Many optional activities allow you to customize your reef adventure (additional expense). Go deeper with an introductory or certified scuba dive, take a guided snorkeling tour led by a marine biologist, embark on an Ocean Walker helmet dive or get an aerial perspective on the reef with a thrilling 10-minute helicopter flight. Families with children can take advantage of the Squid Squad Kids Club’s so parents can enjoy some adult exploration time.

Savor a tropical buffet lunch onboard the catamaran midday, and recharge with afternoon tea. After approximately 3.5 hours at the reef, relax on the return ride to Port Douglas.

This is a must do when visiting port Douglas! All of the staff where super friendly and approachable. We went during the stinger season but not to worry, stinger suits are provided for free. Very good value! We where the talk of the tour getting engaged 500feet above the beautiful reef on their helicopter!

The tour was good but felt slightly rushed. Viators information by email was incorrect, it says departs 10.30 when infant it departs 10 and needs you to board 9.30 so if we hadn't of been there early for a coffee we would have missed the tour!!!

The Quick Silver Company was super organized, friendly and helpful. The buffet lunch was mediocre, but you really don’t want to eat much before snorkeling anyway. The water was a bit murky, not sure why ( a lot of people in one small area or weather?). Nevertheless, it was an amazing experience.

This tour was amazing! Large catamaran made the trip out to the reef easy and comfortable. Lunch on board was excellent. Semisubmersible trip was great-lots to see. All staff were very helpful. I'm not a confident swimmer but was able to snorkel with ease. My whole family loved it!!
