The Tour

Your day starts with a check-in and safety demonstration prior to commencing your flight out to Quicksilver's Agincourt Reef Pontoon.

Experience natures finest with Australia's best and fly out to where 'two worlds meet'. Experience the exhilaration of flying over the rainforest canopy of the World Heritage Rainforest; then, as you see the green change to the vivid blue of the water, you are flying over the 4th Natural Wonder of the World, The Great Barrier Reef! Your pilot will show you the wonders that live beneath the sea.

Landing at Agincourt Reef, on the very edge of the Great Barrier Reef, join the Quicksilver vessel and floating platform for a day of activities.

Quicksilver has facilities for both swimmers and non-swimmers to enjoy this stunning reef world. Explore the reef snorkelling, from a semi submersible, or from the underwater observatory.

Snorkelling is one of the many activities included in your day and is one of the best ways to view the incredible underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. Quicksilver's friendly crew are on hand to show you how. On your journey out to Agincourt Reef, you can view an instructional video on how to snorkel to teach you the right techniques.

Even without entering the water, you can stay dry and explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a Quicksilver sub.  Seated just one metre underwater, experience a diver’s view of the reef as you glide slowly through the reef lagoons and colourful coral gardens in air conditioned comfort. From the wide viewing windows, the reef is revealed in its full glory before your eyes. Marvel at spectacular coral formations thousands of years in the making and home to an amazing array of exotic rainbow-coloured tropical fish.

Participants can watch the fish feeding from Quicksilver’s unique viewing platform and underwater observatory located directly in front of the platform. From here, you can also view “first time” divers taking part in introductory dives.

Your package includes a  delicious hot and cold tropical buffet, consisting of fresh prawns, pastas, hold and cold buffet selection, cold meat selection, fresh garden salads, fruit platters and fresh bread rolls. There are full bar facilities available where you can purchase drinks.

Relax as you return to Port Douglas aboard the Quicksilver Cruise’s wave-piercing catamaran. Relax and reflect on the magnificence of natures finest.
