Poseidon, there is no comparison . . .
The AGINCOURT RIBBON REEFS are long narrow reefs located
along the very Outer Edge of the Great Barrier Reef,
flushed out at every tide by clear oceanic water welling
up from the Coral Sea Trench nearby. Coral thrives in
this clear water, creating spectacular gardens and a
huge variety of marine life. These pristine reefs are
opposite the Daintree Rainforest, well North of any
agricultural run-off from cultivated areas, and provide
the best possible snorkelling and diving opportunities.
All our sites have been selected for both the shallower
coral gardens favoured by snorkellers, and the adjacent
deeper walls and drop-offs preferred by scuba divers.
In recognition of POSEIDON having achieved the ADVANCED
ECO-TOURISM accreditation, following 'best practice'
procedures, and participating in research activities
such as Eye on the Reef, Reef Check, Bleach-Watch and
the Minke Whale Project, the Great Barrier Reef Marine
Park Authority has awarded us an extended operating
POSEIDON is preferred by the leading Port Douglas dive
schools for their continuing in-water education.
Poseidon is also chosen by many renowned underwater
photographers who recognise the importance of visiting
quality reef sites. All images used in this web site
were taken during a day on Poseidon at the Agincourt
The crystal-clear waters, beautiful corals and
incredible fish life found at the AGINCOURT RIBBON REEFS
70k North East of Port Douglas and on the VERY OUTER
EDGE of the Great Barrier Reef, enable us to offer the
best possible day boat diving and snorkelling.
This includes DRIFT and WALL DIVES, isolated pinnacles
surrounded by Pelagic fish, and coral gardens with their
endless variety of colourful wrasses, cods, parrot fish,
angel fish, clams and anemones, that make a healthy
living reef so beautiful.
Poseidon as a company is committed to preserving this
BEAUTIFUL FRAGILE ENVIRONMENT. Moorings are used to
prevent coral damage.
