Poseidon Outer Great Barrier Reef Snorkeling and Diving Cruise from Port Douglas

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Cruising from Port Douglas aboard the modern high speed dive and snorkel catamaran  Poseidon, you’ll have more time to spend at three fabulous snorkeling and diving sites on Agincourt Reef’s outer limits. Renowned for its coral and marine life, the reef is known for being the best diving and snorkeling day trip destination from Port Douglas.
    This cruise suits experienced divers and beginners alike, whether you’re a certified diver or you just want to go snorkeling. If you’re a diver, you can take up to three dives into the Great Barrier Reef’s coral gardens. You have your choice of diving from the mooring site, doing a drift drive back to the vessel or taking an excursion to less easily accessed sites depending on the conditions of the day.
    If you’d prefer to stay on top of the water, go snorkeling in sheltered lagoons with breathtaking drop-offs. Learn about the Great Barrier Reef’s fragile ecosystem during a reef interpretation talk, and then take a guided snorkel tour for an informed look at the reef’s tropical fish and coral.
    Poseidon has been specially designed to enhance your snorkeling and diving adventure with a lowering transom for easier access to the water, an air-conditioned saloon and open deck areas for relaxing on the reef. You’ll also have plenty of chances to hydrate and re-fuel with an included morning tea, afternoon tea and buffet lunch with prawns.

    Have been to the reef twice -- once from Cairns to a pontoon setting, and this one from Port Douglas. This trip on the Poseidon was much more personal and intimate. They went to three different sites along the way. The staff was super friendly...More

    We had a perfect day on the reef. The weather was wonderful, the visibility perfect, the crew very efficient, professional and accommodating. Couldn’t ask for more! As for the reef - a once in a lifetime experience that we will never forget!

    When you have a bucket list item like "visiting the Barrier reef" you don't want to be disappointed. I certainly wasn't with the Poseidon adventure we had. I was able to dive on the first of three stops and the crew took every precaution to...More

    I don’t like doing reviews especially bad ones. Apart from one part the day was very good. When collecting a protective anti-sting Lycra suit from a gentleman named Max, I was greeted with abuse from him. He greeted me “what size” to which I said...More
