Day trip with Calypso Reef Tours out to Agincourt Reef. Boat crew very professional. Good morning tea, lunch buffet and afternoon tea. Great snokelling, with "pool noodles" to help keep you afloat. Introductory Scuba dive was great with one instructor per 4 people. Felt very safe. Could have paid for another 2 dives (~$60ea), but was happy with one. If... More

We went when winds were 25 to 30 knots - very rough and thankful of sea sickness pills. Snorkeling was difficult due to rough weather but still saw lots of colourful fish, although the coral was quite badly bleached. Sea not as clear as it might have been due to rough weather. Still well worthwhile and would recommend it. Crew... More

My wife and I travelled to Agincourt Reef with Quicksilver Tours. It took us an hour and a half to get to the reef from the departure dock.  Quicksilver has a huge permanent platform that the boat docked at. There were semi submersible vessels, scuba diving, walking in the bottom in big helmets, underwater viewing area, and snorkeling, with or... More

So perhaps it was a choppy sea day when we went, but almost everyone on the entire boat was incredibly sea sick and a great number of them were vomiting adults included. The staff knew this would happen which is why they offered complimentary (disgusting and ineffective) Blackmores ginger tablets before the boat even left and 'proper' medical sea sickness... More

Fantastic fish and coral. Definitely worth seeing especially with a qualified diving instructor like Seb L from Blue Dive who knows where to find the hot spots for some good fish spotting

We tried to choose a day with forecasted lower wind speeds- we ended up with about 20knots. It was pretty choppy but still a lovely day. we chose to go out with Calypso as the boat was smaller and there were only abut 40 people on board. thanks to the crew who made it enjoyable and put my nerves at...

There were lots of fish, both in variety and abundance, but the corals were in poor shape. I wouldn't recommend this reef.

Unfortunately, my diving (booked about 1 month in advance) was about one week after Cyclone Debbie hit Queensland. And the winds 'post-Debbie' had shifted to the North, blowing into Agincourt Reef. Subsequently, the visibility was no better than 50 feet (15 meters). I was expecting 100+ feet. The dives (6 over 2 days) were 'OK' but certainly not spectacular. Incredible... More

The best variety of coral I've seen. The weather was not kind and affected the viewing. Quick Silver was too crowded to enjoy the experience.
