Agincourt Reef is located approximately 60 kilometres off the coast of Port Douglas in Far North Queensland. The Agincourt consists of a collection of ribbon reefs that are unique and distinct from each other and have been rated by divers around the world as the best in the Great Barrier Reef.
The Agincourt Reefs have been grouped into four sites and generally each tour operator has a permit for a particular section of the reef. This is to ensure that the reef is protected and remains one of the great natural wonders of the world for future generations to visit and explore.
The reef runs parallel to the Australian continental shelf and its selling point is high underwater visibility and an abundance of coral bommies and marine life. The diving depths range from 5 to 30 metres so it is suitable for beginner and intermediate divers. Corroboree I holds permits to a variety of sites with the Agincourt group so that you can experience multiple dives in a day on a live aboard cruise. It would take a lifetime to visit all the dive sites this reef has to offer.
Among the most well known dive sites are the Flynn Reef, Milln Reef, Thetford Reef within the Agincourt reef group. These dives offer wall dives and swim throughs, coral gardens and underwater visibility up to 20 metres. Due to the vast number of dive sites available you will be able to find a site that is best suited to your diving abilities.
For certified divers with several dives under their belt the remote locations on the outer reef’s edge would be more suitable, allowing more time and space to explore this underwater playground.
