Reef Cruise Information

Quicksilver Reef Cruises take you to their spacious activity platform to explore the Outer Great Barrier Reef from Port Douglas. Snorkel, dive, or don’t even get in the water, everyone gets to explore the Reef!

The Quicksilver Vessel that takes you from the Port Douglas Marina to the Outer Reef Platform is a comfortable wave piercer, making this reef cruise a good option for anyone worrying about seasickness. The platform on the Great Barrier Reef is fixed, and offers an array of activities for the whole family. Snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef, or enjoy the view from the underwater observatory or the semi submersable for any non-swimmers wanting to explore the reef.
