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. A marine biologist will provide fascinating commentary. Your cat 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. 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. Special Notes: - Snorkel equipment and stinger suits are included. - Guests with visual or hearing impairments must travel with a companion at all times. All guests must be able to climb the steps into/out of the vessel unassisted. - Please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and jacket, plenty of biodegradable sunscreen and bring bottled water. - Please take cash for drinks and souvenirs. - The cruise between Port Douglas and the outer reef takes approximately 90 minutes each way. Guests prone to seasickness should take the necessary precautions, as this trip can be rough. - Please be advised that certain activities (listed under "Optional Extras") may be offered once at the pontoon. Please note that these activities are not operated by P&O Cruises and as such we cannot guarantee the safety of guests engaging in such activities. Accordingly, any guests engaging in such activities do so entirely at their own risk. If you are in any doubt about any aspect of any activity offered to you, please contact your P&O Cruises representative.
