Agincourt Reef sits at the very edge of the Great Barrier Reef, a ribbon reef running parallel to the Continental Shelf. There is a multitude of marine life at Agincourt Reef, from tiny iridescent fish seeking shelter in their coral homes to massive giant clams weighing up to 200 kilograms (440 pounds). Perhaps you will see a small harmless reef shark or a boulder coral hundreds of years old.

Your day begins with pickup from your Port Douglas hotel. The fastest ride out to the reef from Port Douglas, the ultra modern 29 meter catamaran will be your base for the day. Throughout the day you'll visit three locations on Agincourt Reef, each showcasing a different aspect of the beautiful Great Barrier Reef. The cruise has exclusive access to 22 premier internationally recognised reef sites and you have the choice to snorkel, dive or a combination of both.

If you have never tried scuba diving you can choose to do one or two introductory dives, or you may prefer to stick to snorkeling and explore all three sites from the surface. A crew member will take those interested on a guided snorkel tour at one of the reef locations. Certified divers can choose to partake in up to three certified dives. Whatever you choose, your Outer Great Barrier Reef Dive and Snorkel Cruise includes up to five hours in the water.

The friendly crew will be happy to answer any questions you have throughout the day. The boat features full bar facilities, fresh water showers and expansive sundecks overlooking the Coral Sea. A tropical buffet lunch will be served between sites, along with morning and afternoon tea.

We recommend you book this reef trip on your first full available day. You then have the opportunity to be flexible and change your travel date if you wish. Your booking can be changed at no additional cost directly with the operator once you are in Cairns. Prebook and secure your booking, but relax in knowing you can make amendments at no charge.

Excellent Tour to Outer Great Barrier Reef, staff on boat to the reef were friendly and attentive, included food and drinks on board was fantastic.
I highly recommend this tour even if your not a great swimmer as the staff fit you up for all the snorkelling gear on the trip to the reef and you get a good briefing before each snorkel. I would recommend taking their advice on using a floatation vest or a spaghetti noodle as they help with floatation and enhances the snorkel experience. This tour went to three different reefs and they were all spectacular in their own way, the coral and fish were amazing, even got to swim with a sea turtle!

An absolute must if you're in the area! Had a fantastic day on the Reef. Signed up for an introductory dive and loved it so much that I ended up diving again.

Was picked up at my hotel at Port Douglas and taken to meet the boat. It's about a 90 minute ride out to the first stop - and beautiful the whole way. Each place we stopped for diving/snorkeling was fantastic and there was plenty to see. We even saw a shark!! Staff were VERY nice, and the boat itself was great as well.

Make sure to pack sunscreen, some water, and a towel!
