Port Douglas Reef Cruise Discover the Great Barrier Reef

When staying in Port Douglas visiting the Great Barrier Reef will undoubtedly be high on your list of things to see and do

Our Port Douglas reef cruise is the perfect scuba dive and snorkel day tour to the outer edge of The Great Barrier Reef!

On your Great Barrier Reef Port Douglas cruise you have the choice to snorkel and (certified) scuba dive at three sites on Agincourt Reef.

Part of the world-famous Ribbon Reefs, Agincourt Reef, is on the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef.

Scuba diving or snorkelling at Agincourt Reef will allow you to come face to face with reef sharks, barracuda, turtles, Maori Wrasse, Parrotfish and Cuttlefish.

During May to September, the Port Douglas Great Reef Cruise has a special permit allowing passengers to swim with the Dwarf Minke Whales if encountered.

Your Port Douglas Great Barrier Reef Cruise departs from Marina Mirage in the heart of Port Douglas.

Enjoy a relaxing 90-minute cruise to Agincourt Reef aboard a fast, comfortable catamaran
