The Great Barrier Reef

Take a fast catamaran out to the Great Barrier Reef’s outer reef for hours of swimming, snorkelling and coral viewing. Your vessel will tie up alongside the Agincourt Reef pontoon, where you’ll find schools of tropical fish darting about the brightly-coloured corals. It’s rush hour on the Great Barrier Reef, marine style. Snorkel and swim, or view the spectacular coral and fish from the underwater observatory theatre. You can also take a ride on a semi-submersible vessel to view the spectacular reef gardens through glass-panelled windows. The pontoon is a comfortable resting place between swimming and snorkelling with plenty of shade.
