"Evening Reef (near Agincourt Reef)" State of Queensland Things to Do Tip by Quero

State of Queensland Things to Do: 315 reviews and 681 photos


The Agincourt Reef area is the only one easily accessible from Port Douglas for diving/snorkeling day trips. It offers very nice viewing of marine life, with little current. You can find a bit of everything here.

One of the things I saw at this site was an octopus. Here you can see him trying to camoflage himself (they can change colors) to blend in with the coral rock he has tried to stuff himself under.

If you click on the photo to enlarge it. you may even be able to spot the suction cups on his tentacles. They are pale gray, and are clearest on the tentacle at the top left quadrant of the photo.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
