Top reasons to select this trip:

1. Visit 3 sites everyday on the 'Agincourt Ribbon Reef System' The most northern outer edge dive destination reached by a day operator. If this is your only trip to the reef, you will be enjoying three different environments in the one day enabling three different types of dives. Great value for money. Certified divers can enjoy up to 3 GUIDED DIVES, using large tanks and computers for extended bottom time.

2. Advanced Eco-Tourism Accreditation Poseidon is proud of its Advanced Eco-Tourism Accreditation and is preferred by the leading Port Douglas dive schools for their PADI continuing in-water education.

3. Five hours of actual reef time this allows for traveling time to Agincourt Reef out of the Port Douglas marina, this allows Poseidon passengers to enjoy more time at the outer edge.

4. Dedicated Dive and Snorkel vessel Poseidon's spacious design and smooth operation format allows for both Snorkellers and Divers to interact without either activity interupting the other.

5. Choice of 16 dive sites, 45 locations With a roaming permit that Poseidon  retains, it allows the Skipper to moor the vessel at the 3 best sites for the conditions, water clarity and marine life available to the passengers on your day of travel. With over 28 years of local knowledge and access to more than 45 locations at 16 different reefs, three of the best sites are chosen each day according to tidal and weather conditions.

6. Guided snorkelling tour included A Snorkelling advisor teaches current use of the equipment and snorkelling techniques and gives a well researched and informative talk on the biology and history of the reef.A trained marine biologist gives a thoroughly informative and interactive expedition over shallow reef formations discussing throughout the tour what is observed by the passengers.

7. All dives guided by the professional staff All dive prices include professional dive guides to assist if requested.

8. Excellent Introductory dives No previous experience is required to enjoy the thrill of scuba diving, under the safe control and supervision of our highly qualified instructors. SMALL GROUPS ensure personal service and individual attention. Enjoy up to 3 INTRODUCTORY DIVES at 3 spectacular reef locations, or spend part of your day diving and the rest snorkelling. There is plenty of time to enjoy both activities with Poseidon. Children 12 years and over can also enjoy this experience.

9. Small passenger numbers. Even though the vessel is surveyed for 130 passengers, Poseidon will only take approximately 80 passengers maximum, this ensures; * a passenger/staff ratio of at least 1 staff member to every 8 passengers * that passengers enjoy an intimate day and are catered for in every way.
