It’s Squid Squad Time!

It’s school holiday time again and that means one thing… It’s Squid Squad time! This fun kids club on Quicksilver’s Outer Reef cruise has proved a popular treat for children and families travelling to the reef.

And the big news is it can now be pre-booked!

Commencing again for the forthcoming school holiday period, 19 September – 13 October, the Squid Squad offers children aged 5 – 12 years an extra dimension to their reef experience. Complete with the Squid Squad activity book, fun and games, they’ll be having so much fun before they even realise it’s educational too.

Supervised by Quicksilver’s friendly and experienced crew, the club runs in 45 minute sessions while at the outer reef platform – giving mum and dad some guilt-free time to enjoy a snorkel, lunch together and relax on the sundeck, or even take a scenic helicopter flight.

The club costs $20 per child. If two or more children from the same family are joining the club, the cost for the additional children is $15 per child.

Key points – Squid Squad:

  • Only available on Quicksilver’s Outer Reef Cruise.
  • 3 x 45 minute sessions available each day.
  • For children aged 5 – 12 years.

Currently only available over the school holiday periods. This next holiday periods are 19 September - 13 October; 12 December - 29th January 2009.

Please contact one of our friendly consultants to pre book the Squid Squad with your Outer Barrier Reef Cruise.

The idyllic Low Isles and its 130 year old lighthouse have both been added to Australia’s Commonwealth Heritage List in recognition of their place in Australia’s cultural and Indigenous heritage. This is a first for the Great Barrier Reef, and is very significant as it is the first time one location has received a dual listing for both Indigenous history and Australian cultural heritage.

Quicksilver has been sailing to Low Isles since 1979 and we have always known it is a special island. On our daily Wavedancer cruise, our Marine Biologists conduct the only guided heritage walk of Low Isles, as well as a guided snorkel tour to share the secrets of the Great Barrier Reef and bring to life the island’s history.

A little bit of island history...

  • In 1770 Captain James Cook described Low Isles as a “small low island” and was officially called Low Isles in 1819.
  • Low Isles is a small coral cay and the Aboriginal people know these islands as Wungkun. It is an important Indigenous and cultural site for the KuKu Yalanji and Yiragandi people as the sea country for both groups overlaps at Low Isles.
  • Weather data has been gathered from the island since 1887 and in 1928 it was the base for the first scientific study of a coral reef anywhere in the world.
  • Quicksilver commenced the first daily cruises to Low Isles in 1979. In 2000, the Low Isles Heritage Walk was officially opened. 

About the lighthouse...

  • The lighthouse was completed in 1878 and for the past 130 years has guided ships through the main shipping channel between Port Douglas and Cairns.
  • The lighthouse was constructed on a timber frame with a galvanised sheath and interestingly, the Low Isles lighthouse was the first in Queensland to have porthole windows. A timber staircase leads to the lantern room.
  • Originally oil burners were used to light the way, but over the years with new technology the lighthouse continued to be upgraded and in 1993 solar conversion made it into a self contained beacon.
  • The original 1878 lens for the light can today be seen on display in the Court House Museum, Port Douglas.

Come and experience this very special island with
Quicksilver’s Wavedancer.

Celebrating Quicksilver VIII’s successful $3 million, four engine refit, Quicky 8 as she is affectionately known, is now back on her regular outer reef cruise taking our guests to experience the magnificent Agincourt ribbon reef.

Not only are her new engines purring along for the smoothest ride, she is leaner and greener than ever.
For the technically minded, our 45metre wavepiercer was fitted with four MTU 2000 series diesel engines, providing a phenomenal 40% weight reduction from the previous engines and a very impressive reduction of carbon emissions by 20%.

It was a very successful refit with her cruising speed of 30 knots, she is running beautifully, more fuel efficient and more environmentally friendly.
 
At a cost of $3million, the refit and new engines were a considerable investment. With significant advances in technology, the choice of these engines ensures we will continue to deliver the “best practice” we strive for as a company. They will also allow us to reduce our carbon emissions by about 20%, reinforcing our commitment to the environment and sustainability.

Fast, spacious and luxurious, the technologically advanced wavepiercing catamaran ensures the smoothest and most comfortable journey in all weather conditions.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard Quicksilver VIII soon to experience our world renowned outer reef experience.
