Quicksilver – Whether you choose to get wet or stay dry, you will have the opportunity to experience all there is to discover on the Great Barrier Reef at Quicksilver's floating activity pontoon.

Is there someone in your holiday party that really doesn’t like to swim? Are the kids desperate to snorkel and get up close and personal with the marine life? Are you just longing to fly high above the reef in a helicopter for the most amazing views? If you answer yes to any or all of these things then this is the reef tour for you. With an activity suited to everyone you are sure to have a day to remember. Visit the underwater observatory and ride in the semi-submersible as many times as you want. Swim/snorkel until your fingers go wrinkly, try scuba diving for the first time, even have a go at helmet diving, or just sit back and relax with a wonderful lunch. A great day out for all ages.
