The trip out to the Argincourt reef on the Supersonic, was organized like clockwork from the booking in until the disembarkment. The three dives we did were really good. The lunch was a real surprise as it was far better than one would expect. All in all a really good experience.

This was an excellent trip from start to finish. Transfer from hotel smooth and on time. Large boat, but not too crowded. Lovely lunch, helpful and informative staff, good snorkelling location and musical entertainment on the way home. All of it made for a superb day. The guided snorkel was particularly good.

What an incredible day out! Awesome experience from start to finish. Staff were great and super friendly able to cater to any needs, special thanks to Jen who took care of us for the day. Semi sub experience was great able to see so much without even getting wet, lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a pod of Dolphins... More

We did the Low Isles trip and is was a great day out. Snorkeling was good and my 5 year old loved snorkeling behind a turtle for nearly 15 minutes. We also saw a couple of reef sharks. The boat trip on Wavedancer was comfortable with a capacity of about 150 people it is large but not as large as... More

Quicksilver Great Barrier Reef tour takes you out further than any other on a massive immaculate beautifully equipped boat with excellent professional friendly & engaging staff. We are in our 50s, no longer strong in the water, but had no hesitation in snorkelling for the first time in years. People of all abilities, or none at all, were all assisted... More

Our trip to the barrier reef with Quicksilver was fantastic. The boat trip to the reef took nearly 2 hours. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided when we boarded. The crew were really friendly and informative. I had never snorkels before and was quite apprehensive. Would I be able to be in the water near fish? It was all explained... More

From boarding the coach at our pick-up point to the spacious catamaran for the 1 1/2 hour trip out to the pontoon, very comfortable and well planned. The whole day was so well organised with ample space for so may people. There was ample space on the pontoon to depose belongings before getting kitted out and diving into the amazing... More

I had read the mixed reviews about the Quicksilver so I was very pleasantly surprised. We were picked up from our accommodation and taken to the marina where we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. We went straight onto the boat as had been recommended on a TA review and got a booth for the 4of us on... More
