It has been a few years since we last travelled with Quicksilver to the Outer Reef and we were really impressed by the improvements to their service. The range of activities available, including for example the options for visitors in wheelchairs to enter the water safely, was really impressive - there really is something for everyone now. I had the privilege of a guided tour with a marine biologist and even though I have snorkelled quite a lot, she pointed out things I would absolutely have missed or not understood without her help. I was really impressed how current the information provided is - given that research into coral and reef systems is proceeding rapidly. Really a great day and highly recommended.

Great experience seeing the reef on a snorkeling ‘tour’ with a marine biologist. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we felt very privileged to share this experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day and all staff on board were welcoming and helpful. We saw amazing coral and sea life including a turtle.

The staff at the reception counter at port Douglas, particularly the lady at the front door were very abrupt and somewhat rude. A horrible start to my day Thank goodness I didn’t go with this company on the boat Just had the unfortunate experience of having to check in through their counter

Ok... we were reluctant to go on the big pontoon, wanted a smaller boat but weather did not permit. We had an amazing day!!! What a professional set up. With over 200 people onboard the staff managed to make sure we felt like we were getting a personal experience. Such friendly and helpful staff. From the tea and biscuits to the talks by the marine biologist and snorkel talk on the way out to the life guides and everyone in between. We paid and did the snorkel tour with the marine biologist. It made our day and allowed us to see things we would never have seen if we hadn't done it. They were super patient with our boys and showed them what they wanted to see. Lunch was yum and the day flew by. We took our three boys 9,11 and 12.

Had an amazing day, lots of staff and all very friendly, knowledgeable and fun. Lots of different ways to see the reef are offered, so suits children and people without much swimming experience. All equipment provided makes it an easy trip too. An expensive day but thought it was good value for the whole day and what is included. Discount from the Entertainment Book applies too.
