      Great outer reef experience with professional Quicksilver crew
      This is a well run operation- the facilities and reef experience were great! This is a good way to experience the outer barrier reef if you are not an experienced diver.

      Overpriced...do something else!
      Overpriced for what the trip offers. Too crowded. Food was not great... very limited choice. And stale cheese on offer for afternoon tea. Morning tea was just a few biscuits. And drinks are expensive. My advise... find a different trip We did a catamaran trip from Airlie Beach around the Whitsundays to Whitehaven beach... food was much better, only 60 people on board. Free soft drinks and alcohol if you wanted... nice breakfast on way out and cakes on way back. Beautiful beaches and snorkelling Much better value. Don't waste your hard earned cash on the quicksilver trip 🙄

      Unless scuba diving wouldn't bother.
      Honestly, unless you scuba diving with them, don't bother going. Snorkelling is more of a side business for quick silver rather than you being treated the same as if you were a diver. I'm not saying the staff don't have passion for the marine side of things, it just wasn't portrayed across to us like other companies we went with and more as its all about money and getting the job done quick. Lack of communication/info, which was bad. We were shown how to put a life jacket on and man over board procedure, but at no point were we actually told what to do in case of emergency on the ship, etc. What to listen out for or where the meeting points are if there was one. I wear glasses and needed prescription snorkeling goggles (which were advertised that they do) although I had to find somebody to get me these as as I was just given normal ones and not asked even though I was wearing glasses. We had this trip booked & paided for 5 days before, we booked an introductory scuba dive each. There was no wavier sent to us to fill in before the trip, unlike other trips, but they had my contact number and email. Only once we had boarded and filled in a waiver 10 minutes before departing was I told I was unable to dive because of a medical condition as I had no medical note. Which i totally understand they have to be strict with, 100% agree but it could be better managed as if I was told this in advance, I could have been able to see a doctor and try and get one, but as we only did the wavier on the day, this was not at all possible. Disappointing to say the least. I suggest they send basic waviers out beforehand where able and a more informative one on the day. However, give credit to them. They were able to sort us out with refunding our fee paid for the dives. We only went with this company for the dive. If we had known this was not possible beforehand, we'd like to have booked with a different company from the start. A positive was that the spread of food provided was lovely!

      Dont have to be young to do this
      Amazing, everything went smoothly. Food was great and snorkeling was a lot easier than I imagined. I'd only been snorkeling once before some 20+ years ago. Wearing a 'stinger' suit was compulsory, but a lot safer to do so. Reef just looks like a patch of seaweed, and they do warn you that the travelogues showing incredibly bright coral colours are filmed at night, and under lights. Expect most of the things you see to have a blue tinge, but still incredibly worth doing.

      Great Adventures Green Island Day Trip is fabulous!
      We did a day trip from the Cairns Marina to Green Island with Great Adventures (who are owned by Quicksilver). We had to change our accomodation at short notice from Cairns to Trinity Beach. The tour had been booked from Cairns but Colin Thompson (a silver coach driver from Quicksilver) offered to pick us up and bring us into town, and then changed his schedule for our return trip so that we could make it to a planned dinner date the same evening. Colin made the inconvenience of changing locations so much easier for us. He is very kind and understanding. We recommend Great Adventures Green Island Day Trip., the water was smooth and clear and the staff so helpful. A beautiful day out.

      Experience of a life time - book now
      We travelled as a couple with my 82 year old mother. From start to finish this was an excellent experience and highly recommended. There was one crewman who was exceptionally good, so caring and made this an experience to remember for my mum as he wanted her to be able to enjoy a reef experience too. We went in the semi submersible (highly recommended and no extra charge), we even saw turtles, we then went in the water and mum was given care, attention and tips so that she could use a mask and snorkel and see the barrier reef from using a safety cord to hang on to and then later a viewing seat. Initially nervous at being well outside her comfort zone she then built up courage to swim out, rewarded with beautiful fish and coral around her. Lunch was lovely and plentiful, all crew helpful and friendly including bus drivers, kitchen staff and those collecting our lycra suits.

      Best time I have had for a long time
      Staff are fantastic. So glad we did this. My daughter enjoyed it as much as I did. Definitely doing this again and add a few extras on the trip. Lunch was alright not a huge salad fan or cold meat but can’t complain. Overall this was a highlight of our trip to port Douglas. It’s a must on your to do list

      Professional, courteous service
      My wife and I were excited to travel interstate to Port Douglas to snorkel etc on the GB Reef. We booked many months prior but having arrived in Port Douglas I had to cancel, first my wife's ticket, and then mine as we had contracted covid. The staff were amazingly understanding and empathetic, which we appreciated. We will visit again to complete the outer reef experience.

      A very enjoyable experience with Gordon our dive master while scuba at the GBR! He ensured we were briefed and emphasized safety. He was very knowledgeable about the local species of animals and coral/sponges/etc.

      Fantastic staff
      I can't comment on the actual tour, because one of our party passed out as we were boarding the vessel; however, the attention and support we received from the staff when this incident occurred was amazing. Within minutes, blood pressure, blood sugar, temperature and blood oxygen levels had been measured by a small team of calm, professional and caring individuals, led by a qualified nurse. We weren't able to take the trip; however, our group of seven was offered either a rebooking or a refund without any fuss whatsover. And when our vehicle was used to transport the casualty to Mossman Hospital, a Quicksilver staff member drove the remainder of our party back to our accommodation. Thank you, Quicksilver.

      Excellent staff and overall very comfortable
      The scuba diving was excellent and the staff seemed very experienced and knew what to do. The boat that took us that was very large but their bathroom on the boat did not have working taps and therefore I couldn't wash my hands. The water isn't that cold even though I visited in winter and was was pretty average but was still mildly enjoyable. Although some equipment could be upgraded such as the fins were either too big or too small or uncomfortable, the majority of the equipment was pretty good. Overall, you should visit this place if you ever visit Cairns.

    We booked this trip because it had options for non swimmers otherwise I wouldn't really recommend it. The underwater submarine and walk was good for the people with us who didn't want to get into the water. There was the opportunity though for beginners to jump into the water if they wanted too as there were life jackets and floatation devices available. Everything was provided for snorkelling and an area was roped off to make sure no one floated away with life guards overlooking the water. Lunch was a buffet with plenty of food for everyone.

    There are other optional extras but make sure you book in early. I tried to sign up for the beginner scuba diving but I was told it was booked out even though I lined up as soon as the announcement was made to go sign up. I'm not sure if there was a way to book before getting on the tour but I'd recommend doing it that way.

    Definitely get to the ship early to make sure you get a seat otherwise you may get stuck standing for the whole trip out to the reef. Try and make your own way to the dock as the tour provided transport got us there a bit late. Once the boat docked it felt a little less crowded but I would recommend claiming a table inside the boat for a spot for lunch and then a spot back.

    Overall it wasn't a bad trip if you don't mind the 200+ other travellers, especially if there is a cruise ship that has docked. It is good way to see the Great Barrier Reef if you have non swimmers with you otherwise I'd recommend looking into smaller tours out to the reef.

    I have now been on 4 Outer Reef Cruises from Port Douglas and have to say that this one supercedes all the others.
    The reason I had never gone on QuickSilver was because I thought their boats were too big, therefore the y can hold many more passangers than the smaller ones. This may be so, but when I went out the other day, there was a maximum of about 80 or so people and it really didnt feel like that.
    The boat was spotless; staff were lovely and food was delicious and plenty of it.
    We arrived at Agincourt Reef an hour and a half after leaving Port Douglas. The weather was calm and sunny. We passed a pod of Dolphons on our way.
    Quicksilver have a large Pontoon at this Reef which was very impressive. I never knew this was here!
    In the price of my ticket you got to go in the subwater boat (or whatever it is called) so that youo can view the coral and sealife without getting wet. We even glimpsed a Turtle. You also get to snorkle for up to 3 hours (if thats all you want to do). The food and all snorkel gear (including a stinger suit ... which is a good idea at this time of the year). You do have the option to do other things but they will cost you extra.
    Another lovely event was the fish feeding. You can view this from out or in the water. I was in the water. Awesome experience :)
    Shannon was the onboard photograoher, who took lovely pictures of us all in and out of the water. These can be bought on the day and are a bit pricy but if you are alone as like me, its nice to have a good photo of oneself as posterity.
    I met some lovely people on this day out and I thoroughly had an excellent time.
    This trip is great for both those who want to be in the water and those that dont. If you dont want to go in the water then it will be a very long day for you. There were even a couple of babies on this trip and I did see one go in the water with its parents.
    I have said this trip is for families but its actually great for everyone (I could only choose one option).

    Our planned day (three dives for me and snorkelling for my partner) was changed after boat damage forced Quicksilver to accommodate us on a platform for the day instead, with two dives. It was a stellar effort under tough circumstances, and that professionalism extended to every second of our day. Hiromi was a great dive master and my partner’s snorkelling was top shelf despite her initial hesitations. Having dived with the company out of Cairns too, I’d wholeheartedly recommend them for anyone keen for a day on the water.

    Was a great option for us with an infant, toddler, middle aged couple and grandparent in one trip, probably the only option. The trip out was quick and very stable. Arriving at the platform is a little hectic, with people rushing for suits and a table to leave their gear. There was no shortage of equipment and everything was clean and modern. Food was ok for this type of experience.
    One of us took the guided snorkel which was excellent and highly recommended. I booked 2 dives but after discussing with the team reduced to 1 dive as I wouldn't have been able to spend anytime with the family with both dives, enjoyable but I've dived better areas of reef.
    The semi submersible trip was great and my toddler loved it, plenty to see.
    It was a busy trip but one we enjoyed as we were all together. Nice and stable for those family members who aren't great on the water, but if you have a stern constitution and high aspirations a smaller boat with a more personal approach and flexible destination maybe a better bet.

    Hi nickh565, Thank you for taking the time to leave a detailed review of your experiences with us. We are glad to hear that our experience catered well to the diverse needs of your group. You're right, the semi-submersible is perfect with the young ones- it's a great way to show them the Reef without the stress of getting them into the water itself. Kind regards, Team QSG

    We took this tour as part of a Make a Wish trip for my daughter. The staff knew we were sent by the Make a Wish foundation and treated us with so much kindness and generosity. We really appreciated it!
    The semi-submersible boats are a lot of fun and allow you an up close view of a lot of the reef life, with the guide giving good information about what you're seeing.
    The snorkeling area was, admittedly, quite crowded and I didn't love that aspect. However, once we moved beyond the roped off zones, we had a much more enjoyable experience.
    The boat is nice and big, so you don't feel a lot of the waves, which helps if you get sea sick.
    The only negative thing I have to say is that the lunch was really unappetizing. There wasn't much variety and we found it difficult to find anything that our kids would eat (or that we wanted ourselves).
    On the plus side, they have lots of options and they provide the stinger suits, fins, and snorkels and they even had defogging spray available for everyone to use. We really enjoyed our day on the reef!

    This was a well organised day out and the chance to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef despite the number of guests! A comfortable boat trip to the floating station took about 90 mins, helpful friendly staff took care of everything. Safety was paramount and plenty of staff took care of everyone from nervous swimmers to experienced divers, there was something for everyone. Lunch was fresh and plentiful. Fantastic way to experience the Great Barrier Reef. Tip : We were on a cruise but signed up direct with Quicksilver and saved over £100 per person and were on the same boat as other cruise ship passengers who paid through the cruise ship for exactly the same experience.

    This was the worst experience we had. Totally commercial and really poor customer service. Crew was focusses only on money. First of all, website did bot mention that you need to be a swimmer to take introductory assisted snorkel tour. We were surprised to find that on the cruise itself and on top of that a marine biologist by the name of Alicia came and informed this. This Alicia lady was totally arrogant and did bot make my wife and sister comfortable by any sorts. She offered a small tour as a favour and on top of that she said “ she is not life guard and she is not snorkelling guide”. After hearing this that in case of emergency, she will call lifeguards, who will get a motivation? She did not take any effort to make ladies comfortable and was really arrogant in answering. Eventually my wife could not go as no effort was taken by Alicia. She did not even refund the money and flatly refused it.

    Good facilities and vessel but really poor customer service by entire crew. All of them were clearly after money. Really bad experience.
    Will bot recommend this to anybody. On the contrary, we had such a good experience of “Reef Experience” tour. Very helpful and excellent customer service.

    I came here 25 years ago when I was young and wanted to take my family back to experience the same excellent day out and we weren't disappointed. Despite the covid-19 restrictions the Quicksilver team made everyone feel comfortable and we all had a great day. The water was a little choppy but the crew had already thought ahead and issues sea sickness tablets to everyone, we sat up top on the way out and enjoyed the amazing views and fresh air. We were extremely lucky to come across an adolescent whale who put on a show for everyone on the boat! When we arrived at the pontoon on the reef it went to the next level with a huge array of amazing fish and sea creatures to see, our children had a great time both in the submarine and snorkelling around the reef - a real memory for them to treasure.

    This tour was absolutely amazing! We did the tour with our 15yo and 9yo and they both loved it too. I was a bit concerned when I heard there were nearly 300 people on the cruise, but it honestly didn't feel like that many people at all. The boat was spacious and each group had their own seating section, and then at the pontoon there was plenty of room to spread out too. We took one of the staff's advice and did the semi-submersible trip first, that way avoiding the rush for the snorkelling area. The semi-sub was fantastic and we saw 4 turtles and a spotted ray. We then had lunch, and although my picky eaters didn't like a lot of the food, they just went back for seconds of the two items they did like, so no one went hungry.

    Then we went snorkelling, and there was a large area for everyone to spread out, so it didn't feel crowded. It probably also helped that we went in after lunch, when others were coming out of the water. Health issues were handled very professionally (my 2 kids have asthma) and we felt very safe and looked after, with multiple lifeguards keeping watch. Stinger suits were provided (the staff member handing them out was very experienced in guessing everyone's size - got us all right just by looking us over!), which helped with sun protection too as it was a hot day. We also all used the life jackets / flotation devices, as it then takes less effort to swim (and my 9yo isn't a great swimmer). My 9yo snorkelled for a bit, and then enjoyed just standing on the platform (where you enter the water) with the lifeguard, watching the large fish that hang around the whole time.

    There were plenty of staff to help and answer questions and they were all friendly and helpful. We absolutely loved our day and would love to come back again!

    Not what I expected at all - we boarded a ship with 400 people and met up with a permanent station near the reef. There were too many people to really enjoy the day, but if you can swim past the folks that were new to swimming, you could get a good view of the reef and fish. My sister scuba dived and had a better time as her groups were small and her dive master was awesome. Lunch was pretty mediocre but you could buy drinks on the ship. Staff was friendly but that doesn’t make up for the hoards of people. If you are looking for a snorkel/dive trip don’t waste your money on this one. We did price comparisons after and the large group size did not drive down the cost. Be sure to find out how many people will be on your trip and opt for a smaller group option, at least something less than 400.
