This large stable catamaran departs Port Douglas and travels to an Outer Barrier Reef Pontoon on Agincourt Reef. This is the only pontoon product out of Port Douglas making it viable for groups who want to visit the Great Barrier Reef that may want options other than snorkelling.

This vessel travels with large numbers and moores against a fixed pontoon on the outer reef. This stable surface is a great option for anyone prone to seasickness as it does not ‘bob' on the ocean, eating your meals is comfortable and other than snorkelling you can do a semi-submersible coral viewing tour, visit the underwater marine observatory and chat with the onboard marine biologist. 

This is a great trip for families or those travelling with young children or the elderly as it has the extra facilities and activities to keep everyone entertained.  This is a shorter day than most other Outer Barrier Reef tours as it has a late morning departure of 10.00am and provides 3 1/2 hours at the poontoon.

For people who are mobility impaired this pontoon is the most disability friendly with easy access for wheelchairs and an electric hoist to assist people to be lowered into the water. One can either stay in the hoist and enjoy partial participation or move into flotation devices to enjoy full participation.

Morning/afternoon tea, full buffet lunch and snorkel equipment is provided. 

Optional activities at an additional charge are: introductory/certified scuba diving, helmet walker, helicopter tours and guided snorkel tours.
