Based in Port Douglas, Quicksilver is Australia's most awarded Great Barrier Reef tour operator. With the choice of wonderful day trips to the Agincourt ribbon reefs and the idyllic Low Isles, you’ll find the widest range of reef experiences suitable for families and all ages, swimmers and non-swimmers alike.
Ocean Spirit, a beautiful 32m sailing catamaran, sets sail from Cairns daily to the unique and pristine reef environment of Michaelmas Cay. Encircled by fringing reef teeming with colourful marine life including sea turtles and giant clams, it is also a National Park and protected seabird sanctuary. Access to the Cay is restricted to preserve this special environment. Snorkel from the beach, cruise in the semi-sub for a diver's view of the reef and observe the fascinating bird life. There's also the option for introductory scuba diving and marine biologist guided snorkel tours.
For your experience of a lifetime, cruise to Quicksilver’s spacious activity platform at spectacular Agincourt Reef on the edge of Australia's Continental Shelf. With activities for swimmers and non-swimmers, dive and snorkel in a kaleidoscope of coral gardens and marine life, or stay dry and explore the Great Barrier Reef from a semi-submersible and underwater observatory.
