About Agincourt Reef:

First of all Agincourt reef is classed as a ribbon reef, a collection of hundreds of smaller reefs growing on the edge of the continental shelf of Australia. (Where the Great Barrier Reef meets the coral sea on a 1000 meter deep wall). Most noteworthy it is the location of these reefs that creates the pristine natural marine environment that is home to thousands of species of marine animals, soft and hard corals.

Most of all it is the large coral bommies (mountains of coral) or patches of reef that extend from ocean floor to the surface above. These unique coral formations are one of the highlights of visiting the Agincourt reef system. Large fields of bright colorful corals in shallow water can be seen for as far as the eye can see. Agincourt reef has over 400 species of soft and hard corals, thousands of species of marine fish, mammals, and marine vertebrates.

Snorkeling and scuba diving on the Agincourt reefs you will find giant clams, trumpet fish, lion fish, glassfish, sea turtles, moray eels, cuttlefish, barracuda, mauri wrasse, anemonefish, nudibranchs, white tip and black tip reef sharks, stingrays and much more.
