Quicksilver Cruises: Outer Barrier Reef Cruise
For your experience of a lifetime, discover a world of beauty, vibrant coral gardens and diverse marine life when you cruise to the Outer Great Barrier Reef with Quicksilver – Australia’s most awarded reef cruise.
Quicksilver’s high speed wavepiercing catamaran will take you in airconditioned comfort to an exclusive activity platform moored at the renowned Agincourt Reef, a jewel-like ribbon reef on the very outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. The Agincourt ribbon reef systems provide unsurpassed coral formations, colourful marine life and spectacular underwater visibility.
From the spacious activity platform guests of all ages, swimmers and non-swimmers alike, can experience this stunning reef world in comfort, whether you choose to get wet and snorkel or stay dry and observe. Friendly and attentive crew, including professional marine biologists, are on hand to ensure you enjoy and gain the most from your day.
Explore the reef from the comfort of a semi-submersible (cruise as many times as you like!), discover in the underwater observatory, watch the fascinating fish feeding presentation or snorkel and dive in the beautiful coral gardens.
Exciting optional activities include introductory diving, certified diving, Oceanwalker hemet diving or an adventure snorkel tour with a marine biologist. Scenic helicopter flights provide another perspective.
