Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is a series of over 2,900 individual reefs, stretching from the tip of Cape York in the north to Lady Elliott Island in the south and covering over 348 000 km2. It comprises of fringing and barrier reefs, continental islands, coral cays and 70 different bio-regions, making it the most ecologically diverse system in the world. Port Douglas and Cooktown is renowned for its beautiful coral cays and islands, and for the close proximity to spectacular outer edge reefs. Accessible to everyone, there are a variety of ways to view the reef; whether you are young and old, swimmer or non-swimmer, everyone has the opportunity to marvel at the magnificence of the Great Barrier Reef.

 

Agincourt Reef

Agincourt Reef lies 39 nautical miles [72 kilometres] off the coast of Port Douglas on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. This spectacular reef system comprises of a series of many smaller reefs known as the 'ribbon reefs' which run parallel to the Continental Shelf. The Agincourt Reef group is continually flushed by clear oceanic waters from the Coral Sea, which make for the best possible snorkelling and diving opportunities. Coral thrives in this clear water, creating spectacular gardens and a huge variety of marine life. Channels offer interesting swim-throughs and caves, whilst majestic bommies attract pelagic fish where they gather to feed. Agincourt Reef is located 72km NE of Port Douglas, opposite the Daintree Rainforest. Travelling time aboard a wavepiercer catamaran from Port Douglas takes 90 minutes. The warm waters of Tropical North Queensland range in temperature from 22-29 Celsius (75-85 Fahrenheit), which makes for year round comfort for in-water activities.

 

Snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is easily accessible with many sections rising in rich, colourful beauty to just a few metres below the surface. The tropical waters and protected reefs provide perfect conditions for novice snorkellers. Snorkelling is great fun, easy to learn and accessible to anyone young or old - it's an enjoyable way to get the whole family involved! Snorkelling requires no special training, only the ability to swim and to breathe through the snorkel.

Equipment is provided onboard your reef cruise with most day trips offering full instruction and an included guided tour. You don't have to swim too far to view the coral as in most cases the reef is right there as soon as you push off into the water. Sometimes large resting buoys are placed short distances from each other so you can snorkel from float to float and rest when you need to. Or if you are still a little apprehensive, some companies offer life jackets and 'noodle' floats designed to give you extra buoyancy, then all you have to do is kick and gaze at the underwater world. You will witness just as much snorkelling as you would scuba diving, with spectacular shallow coral gardens hiding just under the surface.

Swimming with Minke Whales

Dwarf minke whales visit the northern Great Barrier Reef each Australian winter. There are only a few Great Barrier Reef operators with permits allowing guests to swim with dwarf minke whales – so this is a truly special experience. July to September is the peak season to encounter these inquisitive creatures as they frequent the Agincourt Ribbon Reefs.

Minke whales are one of the smallest species of baleen whales and grow to nearly 9 metres long and about 10 tonnes in weight. These curious and friendly whales have attracted attention because they are naturally inquisitive, and often approach boats, divers and snorkellers closely, sometimes interacting for extended periods. These encounters, whilst never guaranteed, are frequent during our winter months. Swimmers in groups of ten are sent out along a floating line once whales have been seen near the boat. No weight belts, scuba gear or flash photography is permitted. By following this passive approach, invariably the whales swim close to the swimmers to satisfy their own curiosity, often staying close by for over an hour until the boat finally has to move on to the next site.

The voluntary approach to the vessel and swimmers by minke whales creates a magical and safe encounter, whereby the whales are in actually control as they decide how long and close they interact and swim with guests.

Certified Diving

Certified Divers will be excited by the range of experiences and magnificent Great Barrier Reef locations to choose from, no two dives are ever the same. Drift and wall dives, bommie and pinnacle, coral gardens and swim throughs are just some of the amazing experiences to expect.

This tends to be where the reef is at its most colourful and full of life. Most day trips offer the opportunity to explore up to 3 reef locations in a day, each site offers a new experience, selected for its unique variety of marine life and corals. All diving is guided by qualified Dive Masters/Instructors, in small groups so you can gain the best experience. Certified dives last approximately 40 minutes or more. With visibility between 15m to 30m and water temperatures of 24C to 30C, it makes for great diving conditions all year round.

Travelling with a Disability

Having a disability does not restrict access or experiences of the Great Barrier Reef. There are many cruises that can cater for people with limited mobility. The best option is to take a pontoon trip. Generally the catamarans that travel to an outer reef pontoon are larger with wider aisles, have a designated seating area, ramp facilities from vessel to platform, and a wheelchair access toilet. Access to the water, coral viewing vessels, underwater observatory and sundeck may require stairs to be negotiated and a carer to be present. The snorkelling platforms are situated right on the waterline and there are bench seats on the snorkelling platform where you can put on your fins, mask and snorkel before entering the water. For guests confined to a wheelchair, Quicksilvers Agincourt 3 reef platform features a specially designed water powered lift that allows for easy access into the snorkel pool.
