Our guide to Outer Barrier Reef Adventure from Cairns

A trip to the spectacular Outer Barrier Reef will be the highlight of your visit to Australia. After an early morning pick-up, transfer to Port Douglas and board your high-speed wave-piercing catamaran for the exciting crossing to the vibrant Agincourt Reef, a magnificent ribbon reef at the far edge of Australia’s natural wonder.

There, you will have the opportunity to see the Great Barrier Reef at its very best - a magical kaleidoscope of life and colour. The reef is home to spectacular corals, a multitude of brightly colourful tropical fish, giant turtles, manatees, manta rays, whales, dolphins and sharks - no place on earth has a greater variety of life. Snorkelling is the best way to see the reef in all its glory and experienced instructors are on hand to ensure optimal viewing.

Other activities available include diving (additional charges payable locally) while those who wish to stay dry can observe the wonders of the Barrier Reef from the comfort of a semi-submersible. You can also view the fish feeding from Quicksilver's unique underwater viewing platform and underwater observatory. With a tropical smorgasbord lunch also included, this is truly an awe-inspiring Australian experience that will create a lifetime of memories.
