This was my second venture out on the reef and I thoroughly enjoyed this experience. I went with a large troupe of friends, and having the opportunity to snorkel in Agincourt Reef was amazing. The semi-sub operating off the pontoon is a must-do (it was great for us as we went on a still, sunny day at low-tide) which flows... More

When we were in Port Douglas at Easter it rained almost the entire time. Fortunately it wasn't raining out on the Reef, which has been on our bucket list for a long time. We booked the Quicksilver day trip which was extremely well organised, with good food, okay gear and 3 diverse snorkelling stops. We were not so keen on... More

I had the most wonderful time travelling solo on the cruise. The service was outstanding, facilities were designed perfectly and the staff were very friendly. An amazing ride over lovely seas takes you to the beautiful barrier reef, where multiple options await you for discovering the reef further. I loved every minute of the experience and can't wait to be... More

Quicksilver takes you out to the Agincourt reef which is simply breathtaking and seriously a must-see. They have a platoon set up which is great as you can hop out of the water and hop back in again with no worries. I would advise all snorkelers to try to snorkel as far from the platoon as possible - as that's... More

You go out to the Agincourt Reef to a platform where there is snorkeling, a submarine ride and an underwater viewing platform. A reasonable buffet lunch is provided. We enjoyed the snorkeling and had a great day. They have lots of optional extras at additional cost - too much; helmet swims, helicopter, biology swims etc and you even pay for... More

This has to be the number one thing visitors book into when visiting cairns. The Outer Great Barrier Reef is the most amazing thing you will see in life, great trip, great food, great service, perfect weather everything you need.

My son and I recently took our first trip to Australia and our first stop was Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef, with Quicksilver. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The dive/snorkel sites were beautiful. The food was pretty good and the boat was very comfortable. My only negative was having to rent a towel. Really? Our... More

We had originally booked for a Wavedancer trip, but we got complimentary upgrades to the outer barrier reef trip because Wavedancer wasn't running on the day we had booked. The trip out to the reef lasts about 45mins and was smooth and comfortable. They gave a couple of presentations and a video to explain everything about the destination and what... More

Free for the day included boat ride to the reef platform where you could snorkel, take a submarine ride or just look from a submerged platform. A buffet lunch catering to Asian and European tastes was also included. My husband snorkeled and, while he enjoyed it, said the photos I took on the submarine ride showed a much larger variety...
