Quicksilver was founded in 1979 with one vessel, a catamaran, which took guests to the Low Isles. This was the first ever commercial trip to these idyllic coral cays, and visitors going to the small fishing village of Port Douglas, just north of nearby Cairns, were quick to embrace the concept. Just a few years later in 1983, they pioneered Australia’s first true Outer Barrier Reef cruise, travelling right to the ribbon reefs at the outer edge of the Continental Shelf – one of the very best locations to experience the full majesty and elemental force of this unique natural wonder.

Today, Quicksilver has become a highly sophisticated company with a fleet of the most advanced Australian made cruising vessels. We have been honoured many times with awards and voted Australia’s best tour operator, but we can only take half the credit. Nature provides the reef and we’re proud to take you to where the very best of nature’s work is found.

They are committed to sustainable environmental practices and ongoing conservation for future generations to enjoy. They're Reef Biosearch environmental division is led by the largest team of marine biologists outside of a government agency!

Agincourt Reef – Discover the Outer Barrier Reef

Quicksilver takes you to Agincourt Reef, at the very outer edge of the Barrier 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.
