great thing about FNQ is when you book, they pick you up at your accommodation and drop you off there. This tour was certainly worth the cost. Took a couple of yours to get to the reef and back again, but the snorkling and semi submersables were well worth the trip, and lunch was excellent

I have done a couple reef trips and it's hard to pick a tour for such a 'once in a lifetime trip' when you don't know what to expect but was very happy with Quicksilver. Our best decision was basing our trip out of amazing Port Douglas instead of the backpacker trap of Cairns. I got in 3 dives and... More

The journey was moderately choppy after 15 mins of start. They offered ice and ginger pills for the passengers fearing nausea. We were parked at the hanger in middle of the green sea. There was buffet food on offer which was fine for us vegetarians. We were suppose to spend rest of the tour (next 2-3 hours) on this hanger... More

We visited the Agincourt Reef with Quicksilver Tours and would highly recommend this tour operator. The cost included all snorkelling gear, a trip in the semi-submersable, morning and afternoon tea and a delicious lunch. The staff are brilliant and the reef itself is superb. A highlight of our holiday in Port Douglas.

We travelling to the Agincourt Reef with Quicksilver with our 9 year old son. It was his first experience of snorkelling and we were not disappointed. We were collected from our hotel in Port Douglas by one of their coaches and from the moment of pick up we were kept informed as to the days events and how to get... More

We had a wonderful experience - and would highly recommend this outfit. First, our bus picked us up right on time. We were driven from Cairns to Port Douglas, and upon arrival at the dock, we're served tea & breakfast sandwiches. This was the first of many meals/snacks for the day. Each was decent -- and tasty when considering the... More

Awesome trip. I was impressed by the quality of the reef (Phil's , Three sisters, Escape). The staff were professional (except when our guide caught/inflated a pufferfish which I thought was a bit poor form) and informative. Well worth the dosh.

My husband & I went out to Agincourt reef with Quicksilver Cruises on the Silver Sonic catamaran. We visited 3 sites and had a fantastic time snorkelling. The crew were great and the food was good. Couldn't fault the day. One word of advise though ALWAYS take the offered seasickness tablets.

My wife and I visited again after 4 years and Quicksilver are the best they cater for everyone if you want to go into the water or not , there are marine biologists on board to explain the reef and promote responsible use which is more than I can say for some other cruisers . The staff are very helpful... More

It took 1.5 hours one way, so three hours return trip on vessel. The actual time on outer barrier reef is about 3 hours including lunch buffet time. As I did not purchase extra activities and just did snorkeling, the experience was very average. It may be better if you dive to deeper sea or join the guided marine tour... More
