This morning depart your hotel for a spectacular Great Barrier Reef Cruise- for your experience of a lifetime, Quicksilver's friendly crew will take you to
a reef at the very edge of Australia's Continental Shelf, to an
underwater world that is a dazzling kaleidoscope of colour and brilliance.
Quicksilver takes you to Agincourt Reef, a magnificent ribbon reef where

With Quicksilver you can choose to dive, snorkel, or stay dry and
explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a Quicksilver semi-sub, just
one metre underwater. Watch the fish feeding from Quicksilver's unique
underwater viewing platform and underwater observatory, or fly in a
