Discover the Outer Reef

You are taken by Quicksilver to Agincourt Reef, which is located at the very edge of the Barrier Reef. In this location, unique reefs called “ribbons” run parallel to the Continental Shelf. These ribbon reefs, which are located in the Coral Sea trench, are acknowledged as the most pristine eco-systems in the reef’s ecosystem. The best underwater visibility is made possible by clear water, which also promotes the growth of vibrant coral and amazing marine life. We selected the best site to demonstrate the best of nature because we were the region’s forerunners on the outer reef.

Entering the Great Barrier Reef’s dramatic beauty is an unforgettable experience. It’s a day that engages all of your senses, lifts your spirit, and transports you to another dimension. Sharing the wonder of the world’s largest living entity, realising its breathtaking colour and majesty, and seeing nature at its most perfect is an awakening and, quite simply, a lifetime memory. Come experience nature’s best with the best of Australia. You’ll feel as if you’ve entered paradise at Agincourt Ribbon Reef.
