Quicksilver Outer Reef Pontoon


Cruising out to the Ribbon Reefs just north of Port Douglas on the very edge of the Great Barrier Reef. Nature provides the colour, coral and marine life on the reef, we just take you to the best part of it. The coral gardens at Agincourt Reef lagoon offer the finest areas for snorkelling and diving.

On arrival at the floating activity platform you can choose to stay dry and explore the stunning reef world from the comfort of a semi-submersible coral viewing vessel, just one metre underwater, or watch the fish feeding from the unique viewing platform and underwater observatory. For those who wish to immerse themselves, why not try a scuba dive (no experience necessary) or join the snorkelling expedition. The more adventurous can take a helicopter joyflight (excellent photo opportunities). Whatever you choose, you’ll take home a greater understanding and insight into this living natural wonder.

INCLUSIONS:- Morning and afternoon tea, informative reef presentation by a Marine Biologist, hot/cold tropical smorgasbord lunch with seafood, snorkelling equipment and instruction, underwater observatory for fish and coral viewing and coral viewing from semi-submersible vessels.

WHAT TO BRING:- Hat and sunscreen, camera, swimming costume, shirt for sun protection, beach towel, cash for refreshments at the bar and onboard souvenirs.
