It's fun and easy! No experience is necessary to experience this amazing underwater world with an introductory scuba dive. Suitable for beginners and first time divers aged 12 years old and over.

  • Head to the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef and step onto a specially designed viewing station
  • See the best the ecosystem has to offer at Agincourt Reef, a spectacular ribbon reef thriving with life
  • Snorkel, dive, or stay on the submerged activity platform where you can look through the crystal-clear water

Hop aboard Quicksilver's catamaran and travel 39 nautical miles to the edge of Australia's continental shelf. There's a specialised activity platform waiting for you, right where the reef's ecosystem remains most pure.

If you're here to snorkel or dive, you're in luck. This far out, the clear ocean water helps the ribbon reefs teem with some of the most vibrant coral and sea life you'll see. The platform has a licensed bar, underwater observatory, semi-submersibles, showers, and air-con.
