We did three days of scuba diving on the Poseidon. They were friendly, efficient and professional. It was my best diving experience ever. The food was excellent. I felt safe and comfortable with their equipment and instructors.

This is the trip to do. We took the full day tour to the Quicksilver pontoon on Agincourt reef. Perfect. It's a long boat ride out, but the boat is enormous and there's heaps to do. The pontoon tha these guys run out on the reef is amazing; snorkelling, semi-submersible tours, underwater walking tours, helicopter tours. More than enough to... More

I arrived in Cairns rather unprepared and was a little overwhelmed by all the choices for snorkeling and scuba diving. At a store in Cairns I asked a clerk what were the recommended snorkeling cruises and she said she used to work with Quicksilver and they were very reputable. So I booked with them. Positive recommendation from previous employee goes... More

My sister and I went out to the reef with quick silver and it was a fabulous day. We went snorkeling, underwater walking with a helmet on your head, submarine over the reef which really doesn't have a lot of color left. There are lots of activities for everyone but be aware that they charge a lot for all the... More

Too many people, not personal enough. The part of the Reef where the pontoon is situated is in poor condition. Rather expensive for not a real good Reef experience. Wish we had gone on a smaller boat to a different area of the Reef. 👎

Me and my Mom went on a trip to the GBR with Quicksilver, we did a helicopter ride out to the reef which was absolutely breath taking! Everything was very well organised and the staff very friendly, we then had a few hours out at the quicksilver pontoon, the food was good and the snorkelling was great! A fab experience... More

Spent a day at the Outer Reef (Agincourt) with Quicksilver - good activities but priced premium and just passable food. We did activities like snorkeling and trip on the semi submersible which are part of the package. Those were good fun and the Reef has an wonderful aquatic ecosystem to enthrall anyone. We did the additional paid scuba dive. The... More

We went out on quiksilver in port douglas due to the wind picking up and wanting a stable platform . I wanted a trip where their were a few options not just snorkeling. Quiksilver delivers this with a glass bottom boat and viewing platforms which are great for people who dont want to be in the water all day. I... More

Everything went like clockwork. A very well organised day out, from Cairns - the driver gave a running commentary all the way to Port Douglas. Tip: the best coral is the area furthest from the platform. Near the platform is rather deeper. Morning and afternoon tea and lunch provided (and there is plenty to eat)

We took a full day tour on Quicksilver VII. A very professionally run tour. Talks on the cruise out were very informative. Lunch was delicious and the Reef - well there just aren't enough words to do it justice. The stinger suits were a welcome addition for warmth as well as protection, although trying to get out of them was... More
