Well worth it, the crew were brilliant and helpful. There is plenty of food served, buffet style, very fresh and tasty. We had safety briefs and they told us... More

Magical, just do it! The water colours, the myriad of coral colours and types, and the marine life just wonderful. I could have snorkeled here all day! The helicopter ride at the end was just amazing. Mind you, we were blessed with calm seas and beautiful sunny days. Hope you are too!

We visited Agincourt Reef with the Quicksilver day trip. The reef is so beautiful and full of fish. We even spotted and swam with a turtle, a unique experience. Great place for snorkelling. Would love to visit it again

Was expecting much more in terms of interesting fish and vibrant colored corals. Overrated, at least what we saw. I'm done with snorkeling. .?perhaps a smaller tour operator than Quicksilver would have been beter.

Beyond imagination, our climax of a month long Australian trip. Exotic marine life, myriad of vibrantly coloured fish, turtles and reef transport you in a fantasyland. Unmissable. Just go for it, you return richer with the experience of a lifetime.

I had some reservations due to negative reviews but was overall surprised and delighted with our day out. Every member of staff were very pleasant and extremely helpful. The boat trip turned out to be better tha expected despite this being at tail end of cyclone winston. The pontoon was as described and despite being a captive audience we weren't... More

Not only did the brightly colored fish make you feel like you are in an aquarium, the color was amazing! A shark swam right underneath me.
