Explore the very outer Great Barrier Reef in style with Calypso. Embark on a Port Douglas diving adventure and try an introductory dive with our professional PADI dive instructors to view the underwater world like never before. For the experienced divers (certified), join our PADI dive masters as they show you sheer walls of corals, caves and possibly drift dive (if conditions permit). For snorkellers, there is plenty to explore from the surface and guided tours are available.
Made up of four separate reefs that face out to the South Pacific Ocean, Agincourt Reef is regarded as one of the most significant sites of this natural wonder. Here you’ll find rich, diverse coral gardens that help form these protective ocean walls, filled with hard and soft corals as well as the reef’s most iconic species such as sharks, stingrays, turtles, whales*, groupers and cods, maori wrasse and parrotfish.
