Snorkelling is one of the many activities included in your day and is one of the best ways to view the incredible underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. Our friendly crew are on hand to show you how. On your journey out to Agincourt Reef, you can view an instructional video on how to snorkel to teach you the right techniques.

Even without entering the water, you can stay dry and explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a Quicksilver sub.  Seated just one metre underwater, experience a diver's view of the reef as you glide slowly through the reef lagoons and colourful coral gardens in air conditioned comfort. The semi-submersible coral reef viewing tour takes approximately 25 minutes and includes an informed commentary on the marine life observed during the journey and an overview of the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.

 

Underwater Observatory

Watch the fish feeding from Quicksilver's unique viewing platform and underwater observatory located directly in front of the platform. From here, you can also view "first time" divers taking part in introductory dives. You can see the reef vibrate with the hues, stripes, and shimmering's of a myriad of fishes.
