About Us

The Quicksilver Group - The Great Barrier Reef's most awarded tour operator

A pioneering reef tourism company, Quicksilver commenced operations in 1979 with the first commercial cruise to picturesque Low Isles off the coast of Port Douglas. Today the Quicksilver Group has grown to become Australia’s leading Great Barrier Reef operator and one of North Queensland’s largest private employers.

With a sophisticated fleet of 10 major vessels, 2 reef activity platforms and the most amazing array of Great Barrier Reef destinations, we offer the widest range of reef experiences to visitors to Tropical North Queensland. Proudly, we are Australia’s most awarded reef cruise company.
