Itinerary

Port Douglas is perfectly positioned to easily experience the Great Barrier Reef, with Quicksilver out to the amazing Agincourt Reef and only 20 minutes away is Mossman Gorge, which provides a spectacular taster of the region’s tropical flora and fauna. A serene dip in its silky waters and swim, snorkel or float down the river to discover this ancient land.

With your relaxed pace, discover one-of-a-kind boutiques, markets and galleries along Macrossan Street, or splash in the warm, calm waters of Four Mile Beach. Balmy evenings are shared dining alfresco, with ultra-fresh seafood, awarded restaurants and impressive cocktails everywhere you look.

Your 6 days in this tropical paradise includes the following two activities:

Rainforest River Drift

Today you will get to experience the rainforest in a unique and fun way as you swim, snorkel, float and walk through the beautiful tropical rainforest.

Step into the cool, crystal-clear water and drift with the current as you explore life under the water’s surface. Watch fish dart in and around the river stones and keep your eyes out for the occasional turtle.

This family friendly tour is the perfect way to stay cool in the hot tropics and a great introduction to snorkelling before heading out to the reef.

As you explore one of the cleanest rivers in Australia, keep an eye out for some of the friendly inhabitants such as turtles, over 30 species of fish, water dragon, colourful birds, electric blue butterflies and Elusive platypus.

 

 

Quicksilver Great Barrier Reef Cruise

Today you will experience nature’s finest with one of Australia’s reef cruise on Quicksilver. This wavepiercing catamaran and friendly crew will take you to a reef at the very edge of Australia’s Continental Shelf, to an underwater world that is dazzling kaleidoscope of colour and brilliance of Agincourt Reef. Here, special reefs known as ‘ribbons’ run parallel to the Continental Shelf. Adjacent to the Coral Sea trench, these ribbon reefs are recognised as the most pristine eco-systems in the reef’s environment. Clear water provides the best possible underwater visibility, encourages rich coral growth and supports spectacular marine life. As the region’s outer reef pioneer, we chose the best location available to show you nature’s finest.

Entering the dramatic beauty of the Great Barrier Reef is an extraordinary experience. It’s a day that engages all your senses, lifts your spirit and takes you into another realm. Sharing the wonder of the world’s largest living entity, realising its breathtaking colour and majesty, seeing nature at its most perfect is an awakening and, quite simply, the memory of a lifetime. Come and experience nature’s finest with Australia’s best. At Agincourt ribbon reef, you’ll feel as if you’ve embraced paradise.

Choose to dive, snorkel, or stay dry and explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a Quicksilver semi-sub, just one meter underwater. Watch the fish feeding from Quicksilver’s unique underwater viewing platform and underwater observatory, or fly in a helicopter over the reef.

Whichever way you choose, you’ll bring home a lifetime of memories from today’s adventure (Lunch included)
