Tour Description


Experience Australia's most awarded Great Barrier Reef cruise with our friendly and knowledgeable crew as you travel to the renowned Agincourt reef, a jewel-like ribbon reef with spectacular coral formations, colourful marine life and clear outer reef waters.



Departing daily from Port Douglas Reef Marina at 10am, you’ll travel in air-conditioned comfort aboard the sleek wavepiercing catamaran providing a stable and comfortable journey. En route to the outer reef learn about the fascinating ecosystem and some of the marine life you may encounter with the informative Marine Biologist presentation. Be sure to watch the snorkelling demonstration for some great tips to make the most of your day.



Once moored at the spacious dual level activity platform, you’ll be able to take advantage of the many features including snorkel and scuba dive platforms, scenic sundeck, undercover seating, a buffet servery and licensed bar, change rooms, showers and even an official Australia Post box!



Explore the reef in a semi-submersible just one metre underwater with commentary (you can cruise as often as you like!) and be mesmerised from the underwater observatory as colourful fish dart and play in beautiful coral gardens. For exciting optional activities, first time divers can try an introductory dive and certified divers travelling with family or non-diving companions can experience up to two certified dives. There’s helmet diving, marine biologist snorkel tours and for a totally different perspective, scenic helicopter flights too.



A delicious hot and cold buffet lunch, morning and afternoon teas are included in your day.

After a day of discovery at the Great Barrier Reef, you will arrive back at The Reef marina Port Douglas at 4:30 pm.
