Great hospitality on the trip out to the reef and back again. The highlight was a trip in a helicopter over the reef - really recommend it. Saw a turtle while travelling in the semi submersible boat around the reef. Great way to see the coral if you are not a swimmer. Lunch food was amazing!

What a professional group Quicksilver are. From online booking, bus ride, right through to the activities on the reef. I travelled with to two children who were excited but somewhat nervous about snorkelling. The life guard staff in particular where attentive and supportive of our children. This encouraged them and as a result had and wonderful experience. Our youngest became... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the cruise to go snorkeling at great barrier reef. We didn't get any seasickness at all. The crew members are very kind and have travel calm tablets for those that do get a bit sick. We saw turtles and found Nemo lol and alot of beautiful tropical fishes. Truly an amazing experience!

This company is first class. From the moment you book to board the boat they are focussed on great service. The staff always look happy and are interested in their work. This was our second trip with QuickSilver and they were amazing again. You always feel safe and well looked after. Their equipment looks well maintained and new. We did... More

I thought the coral didn't have great colour also not to many fish about. a bit choppy also added to the not so good snorkel. went out with a different company 6 years ago and that was better than this dive spot. everything else was ok. check conditions and swap if you can to...

I took my mum on this tour so that she could do the submersible tour and enjoy the underwater viewing platform, being a non-swimmer. She loved it! We queued up as soon as we got there as it can get busy. I snorkelled while she enjoyed her buffet lunch. Food was great - good quality, but it was tricky to... More

Excellent day for a 7 & 12 yo and parents. Fantastic helpful staff, roomy boat, clean facilities, timely and informative bus transfer, great platoon setup complete with life guards. Beautiful reef viewing. Suggest booking in advance for snorkel tours. Booked out fast once on board.

This company do a great job! We did this trip from Port Douglas, family of 2 adults, 3 children. The boat ride was extremely comfortable, I sat inside on the comfy chairs while hubby and the kids explored the decks. The sea was a little rough but sea sickness tablets are available for purchase. I get car sick easily so... More
