I took Poseidon the Quicksilver Dive and snorkel boat. Fantastic day at the reef. I was recommended not to go by the Hotel as it was red (weather forecast) day for high swells and winds. It did seem long, but not too bad. When at the reef I did 3 dives. The reef was stunning. I have dived 3 other reefs. I think this is better than Hashtags Reef, the main one visited from Cairns. There are still loads of fish as my first visit 30 years ago. Less giant clams though. Still we saw huge colourful groups of Wrase, Parrot , Angel and many other fish I don’t know. Just one turtle and 2 reef sharks though. Saw humpback whales on route out which was exciting Poseidon have a great dive boat. Gordon and Chris are both good Dive masters, thoroughly checking your equipment and sorting issues quickly. My first regulator had a leak. It was all fixed after the final check, changes reg, refilled bottle, done in under 5 minutes so none of the group were delayed Fantastic day

Went to Agincourt reef on a calm July day. Smooth ride, all snorkelling equipment provided, including a stinger suit, made it a fascinating day. The visibility was very good, the different corals beautiful but colours more muted than 10 years ago. Saw a friendly reef shark and a giant wrasse, besides a large variety of tropical fish. We visited 3 separate sections so a full day. Highly recommended. The reef needs our help, it’s under massive pressure. Please visit before it’s too late.

The reef is well worth a visit but you will not find brightly coloured coral and Nemo and his friends hanging out here. There are still plenty of fish to see and the highlight was seeing the sea turtles. The reef is large should be included in your trip to port Douglas.

Spent a day here at the pontoon recently and it was a wonderful experience. Well controlled snorkelling with amazingly knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff who are a pleasure to meet and learn from. A good lunch was provided and it was not as crowded as I thought it may have been. A real once in a lifetime experience.

My brief to the information site that we booked out tour to the Great Barrier Reef through was I wanted as much time on the water as possible and I didn’t want to be put on a pontoon with hundreds of people and kids in submarines or anything else- all I wanted to do is snorkel. So the Quick Silver Group was recommended by them. We were booked on the Silver Sonic boat out of Port Douglas. It was an hour and a half out to Argincourt reef system. Our boat was about ¾ full. The boat was large, smooth and comfortable. We were fitted up with mask, snorkel and stinger suit before we got out there. There was tea/coffee, snacks and lunch provided. The lunch was relatively simple but adequate. There was plenty of it. It was an easy move from the boat into the water each stop – we had 3. The water was clear- visibility was huge. The fish life was prolific and the coral varied. We saw a turtle but no sharks. The water was beautifully warm. We had no stings that we were aware of. But when we got back to our hotel and over the next few days, we had got numerous lice bites that were extremely itchy. The last snorkel, we were offered a tour with the marine biologist on board. We took them up on this offer and it was so interesting- all sorts of things pointed out that we hadn’t even thought of. We left port at about 8.30am and we were back by 4.30pm. We felt well cared for, catered for and overall it was a great day
