The Newport on Macrossan

Poseidon – The Ultimate Snorkel & Dive Adventure

The Ultimate Snorkel & Dive Adventure

 

Your reef journey with Poseidon will take you 70kms north east of Port Douglas, to the Agincourt Reef. The clear waters, beautiful corals and extensive marine life will ensure you experience the best the Great Barrier Reef has to offer whether you are snorkeling, taking an introductory dive or completing a certified dive.

Poseidon has a dedicated snorkel crew to provide personal in-water assistance for beginners, whilst the more experienced snorkeler can enjoy unrestricted exploration of the spectacular drop-offs and coral pinnacles.

No experience is required to try the thrill of the introductory scuba dive. Poseidon’s highly qualified instructors provide tuition and briefing on board the vessel, and you will practice your pre-dive skills prior to taking your first dive with your instructor.

Certified divers are able to partake in up to three guided dives, using large tanks for extended bottom time.

Poseidon’s permit allowing guests to swim with the Dwarf Minke Whales follows very strict guidelines to ensure these friendly creatures are not disturbed. Should you be lucky enough to visit Port Douglas between May and September when the Minke Whales are around you simply must not miss the opportunity to swim along side these remarkable passive and curious mammals.
