We lucked out with a gorgeous day on the reef, little wind and nice temperatures. Our kids loved it, as did we. Great boat ride, food was quite acceptable, staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and the reef and wildlife were spectacular. Highly recommend.

The outer reef tour to Agincourt reef was very enjoyable. The cat (vessel) was a dream to ride in and made the trip both ways very smooth. The diving was fantastic and all levels are catered for. My 8 year old daughter was a little tentative at first, but soon relaxed and it took all my effort to keep up... More

I recently snorkled with Quicksilver, and found the experience excellent. The boat is large and well appointed. At the 3 stops we made, we had more than enough time for all the snorkling I wanted. The spots were excellent, and I saw beautiful coral and sea life.

The Outer Reef tour was the absolute highlight of our holiday in Port Douglas! All staff were friendly, helpful and professional, the facilities on both the boat and the pontoon were as stated on Quicksilver's web site and were clean and in good condition. The semi-submersible was a great way of viewing the reef & the beautiful marine life. My... More

We had a party of 9 and we were originally due to depart on the Poseidon boat but we were fortunate enough to receive an upgrade to the Quicksilver cruise. The boat ride there was choppy, but the staff were very attentive. There was plenty of room to move about the boat and didn't take too long to reach the... More

Well organised day out with something for everyone from scuba diving, snorkelling, submersibles and even a way to keep your hair dry but get up close and personal with the fish. Excellent day out be ready to come back tired but thrilled.

We had a fabulous day on the Great Barrier Reef with Quicksilver. We paid extra for a beginners snorkelling guided tour and it was well worth it. Sophie, our marine biologist was very patient with us and made the snorkel suitable to our level (we had 2 children and the water was quite rough!) and it was the highlight of... More

This is great, for people who aren't swimmers, as there are many activities onboard including underwater viewing area. The marine biologist snorkelling tour was amazing, and I would recommend it.
