What to Expect
Travel reference:

Discover just why the Agincourt Reef, part of the Outer Great Barrier Reef, is so famous! This jewel-like ribbon reef is located on the edge of Australia's Continental Shelf, and on this tour, you get to see it from above and below. 


Take advantage of the exclusive activity platform, where you can go snorkelling, swimming and scuba diving (introductory and certified dives available). Visit the underwater observatory and listen to a presentation on the ecology of the Great Barrier Reef from a qualified marine biologist. Try out the cool semi submarine and check out the underwater scenery without even getting wet. 



And finally, top off your day with a 10 minute helicopter ride, the best way to see Agincourt Reef from above and get some amazing photos. This tour also includes a delicious tropical seafood buffet lunch and complementary morning and afternoon teas on board.


Have the experience of a lifetime seeing the brilliant Outer Great Barrier Reef from above and below!
