My boyfriend and I went to the outer reefs from Cairns on Silver Swift. Really friendly staff who are clearly passionate about showing off the reef but want to keep it pristine. They provided information about each of the three sites visited, lunch was excellent and I would be more than happy to do another tour with them in the... More

I went on the silver sonic boat and really enjoyed myself , the staff were friendly and very helpful, the scuba diving was good but if you are looking for high quality diving I suggest you go on a smaller boat, however the snorkeling is lots of fun and it is very safe because there are more then two lifeguards...

Had a great trip to the reef last week. Smooth trip out and a great lunch on the pontoon. Our family went on the semi subs and saw a turtle which was a highlight. Another highlight for my daughter and I was a 10 minute trip on GBR Helicopters over the reef - amazing to see the reef from this... More

This was a great tour. We left from Cairns and took the bus ride to Port Douglas in a very comfortable coach. You do have a lot of hours on the pontoon but you need to be organised if you want to fit everything in. Make sure as soon as you get off the boat you save a table for... More

We did the full day trip to the Great barrier reef with friends. We picked this tour because there was plenty to see if you didn't snorkel. We were not disappointed, had a great trip in the submersible boat viewing the reef and a lovely lunch. Was good just watching the helicopter trips and the people snorkeling and diving. The... More

We were picked up from our hotel for a pleasant journey to the boat. Although the harbour was very busy it did not take long to get all the passengers on the boat, where complimentary tea and coffee and biscuits were being served. The whole experience was well up to expectations with the opportunity to go on a submersible to... More

My wife and I were very excited to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, and we weren't disappointed. We went on this excursion from the Sun Princess. The catamaran took about 1 1/2 hours to get to Agincourt Reef. the ride was very comfortable for us and most everyone else. The boat docked at a large area supported by pontoons.... More

The Quicksilver boat was wonderful really spacious the couches were really comfortable. Great selection of drinks on board. The sea was so flat there was no rocking at all which was fantastic. When we got to the reef it... More

This was the second time we did this particular cruise going to the Agincourt Reef. Staff are very friendly,informative & patient (even when getting questioned by our 6 yr old who considers himself a bit of a pro when it comes to marine life lol). Although we didn't find the buffet lunch overly impressive with no real choices for fussy... More
