Explore Australia's Great Barrier Reef from the air and the water! A scenic helicopter flight or high-speed catamaran cruise from Port Douglas will take you to the Outer Barrier Reef platform on Agincourt Reef, a sheltered base for a day on the Great Barrier Reef. Explore the reef snorkeling, from a semi-submersible submarine or from the underwater observatory. You can choose to travel by scenic helicopter one way and cruise by high-speed catamaran the other, or take the helicopter in both directions. The choice is yours!


The permanent pontoon moored at Agincourt Reef provides a sheltered base for a day on the Great Barrier Reef. Located on the very edge of Australia’s continental shelf, Agincourt is a magnificent ribbon reef teaming with a wide variety of fish life, both large and small, and a kaleidoscope of magnificent corals.

Departing from Port Douglas, the high-speed catamaran will take you directly to Agincourt Reef in 90 minutes. Or you can choose to travel by scenic helicopter and fly over the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest and take in the views of the white sand cays and the magnificent colors as you fly over the Great Barrier Reef, arriving at Agincourt Reef in 35 minutes.

You'll have three hours to enjoy the reef at your leisure. Grab a snorkel and fins and hit the water on your own, or join an optional guided snorkeling tour with a qualified marine biologist. Snorkeling is a great way to explore the Great Barrier Reef, and there are friendly staff on hand to show you how.

Prefer to stay dry? You can explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a semi-submersible submarine. You'll take a leisurely cruise through colorful coral gardens, giving you a snorkeler's view of the marine life without getting wet.

A delicious hot and cold tropical buffet lunch is included, containing fresh prawns, pastas, meats, salads and fruit. There are full bar facilities available where you can purchase drinks.

You can choose to cruise back to Port Douglas by high-speed catamaran or by helicopter.
