UNDERWATER OBSERVATORY

Watch the fish feeding from Quicksilver’s unique viewing platform and underwater observatory located directly in front of the platform. From here, you can also view “first time” divers taking part in introductory dives. You can see the reef vibrate with the hues, stripes, and shimmering’s of a myriad of fishes.

SEMI-SUBMERSIBLE BOAT TOUR

Even without entering the water, you can stay dry and explore the stunning reef from the comfort of a Quicksilver sub.  Seated just one metre underwater, experience a diver’s view of the reef as you glide slowly through the reef lagoons and colourful coral gardens in air conditioned comfort.  The semi-submersible coral reef viewing tour takes approximately 25 minutes and includes an informed commentary on the marine life observed during the journey and an overview of the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.

OPTIONAL EXTRA ACTIVITIES

You can choose to add on an introductory dive, certified dive or even a scenic helicopter flight!
