Quicksilver – Outer Reef Tour

Outer Reef Tour

Quicksilver is the proud recipient of many Tourism Awards; the company is the largest reef operator in Port Douglas. The wave piercing catamarans are big and comfortable.

Each vessel caters for up to 470 guests, making the Quicksilver cruise to the Great Barrier Reef the ideal choice for families or large groups.

At 45 meters in length, the vessels are big enough to ensure a smooth ride, regardless of the weather and even at the speed of 39 nautical miles [72 kilometers].  In the spacious air conditioned cabin areas, you can enjoy the fully licensed bar, or alternatively you can relax outside and enjoy the infinite blue horizon and sea breezes.

Quicksilver departs daily for their pontoons on Agincourt Reef, a magnificent ribbon reef where you can snorkel, dive and experience the reef which runs parallel to the Continental Shelf.

The Quicksilver dual level platform is floating like an island in the Coral Sea, significant in size and stable.

The vessel anchors alongside and the platform has many  features including change rooms, fresh water showers, sundeck, shaded seating, tables where you can enjoy lunch, introductory dive and snorkel pools even a water powered lift which provides wheelchair bound guests with easy access.
