Port Douglas in one of the few locations in Australia that offer unbeatable close access to The Great Barrier Reef, and of the most famous diving spots just off the coast is Agincourt Reef.

Touted as one of the best snorkelling diving experiences to be had in the world, Agincourt Reef is a must that’s located just 65-kilometres from the coast. Agincourt Reef is situated near the top of the Great Barrier Reef’s continental shelf, and once you dive under the water’s crystal-clear surface you’ll gaze on vibrant aquatic and plant life unique to Australia’s most famous tourist destination. Made up of a series of small reefs, there’s at least 16 different dive sites at Agincourt Reef offering hundreds of different pelagic fish, turtles, and breathtaking corals to see. Snorkel, dive, or experience everything from a glass boat – whichever you do Agincourt Reef is sure to be one of the highlights of your stay in Port Douglas.
