Snorkelling

Snorkelling

Snorkelling is one of the best ways to view the incredible underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef, and Quicksilver's friendly staff are on hand to show you how. On your way out to Agincourt Reef you can view an instructional video on how to snorkel to teach you the right techniques.

Upon reaching the outer reef, you can obtain your snorkelling equipment from the storage containers on the platform. Lycra stinger suits are also available to hire. Fish feeding takes place from the platform so you can view the marine life up close.

Welcome home Quicksilver VIII and Agincourt 3 Platform

Welcome home Quicksilver VIII and Agincourt 3 Platform

By Quicksilver Outer Barrier Reef

21 Sep 2016

Quicksilver's flagship wavepiercing catamaran and Agincourt 3 (AG3) activity platform are once again welcoming visitors to experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef after both having recently completed million dollar makeovers.

And they are looking great! Quicksilver VIII's interior transformation provides a super stylish and luxurious interior for our passengers to enjoy, while the 50 metre (164 ft) activity platform provides the most spacious and comprehensive facilities on the entire Great Barrier Reef.

To complete the platform's refurbishment, she was towed into the mainland, quite a feat in itself. Taking 36 hours to tow, this photo courtesy of Great Barrier Reef Helicopters shows a bird's eye view as she commenced the return journey from Cairns back to Agincourt Reef at the edge of Australia's Continental Shelf. Whilst refit maintenance is conducted annually, this is the first time since originally installed on the GBR 21 years ago, that the AG3 platform has been taken out of the water to make possible the one million dollar refurbishment.

Ten weeks in the making, Quicksilver VIII's extensive internal refurbishment saw her interior gutted and refit with a new contemporary design and colour scheme. Her makeover includes new ceilings, walls, tabletops, counters, bar area and toilets. In addition there are new carpets, LED lighting and larger TV screens throughout the vessel.

These total refurbishments, in addition to regular annual refit maintenance across our fleet, reflects the Quicksilver Group's commitment to ensure our passengers have the newest and best facilities available to enjoy their time at the Great Barrier Reef.
