Port Douglas, 21st December, 2016 – The Reef Marina and Quicksilver Cruises have today signed a landmark lease agreement that will see Australia’s most awarded reef operator further extend its almost 30-year partnership at its Port Douglas home port. The Reef Marina general manager Rob Cruz welcomed the news Quicksilver’s fleet of vessels including its iconic silver wavepiercing catamarans, along with Wavedancer and luxury vessels Silversonic and Poseidon, will continue to berth at The Reef Marina.
Quicksilver’s retail tenancies will also remain in place. “Quicksilver has been a key partner of the Marina for three decades and we are pleased this will continue for many more years to come,” Mr Cruz said. Quicksilver Group managing director Tony Baker said the company was pleased to renew its lease at The Reef Marina, which has been its home since the Marina was first opened in 1987.
“Our current Quicksilver fleet of five vessels and 10 coaches has grown over the years following the development of the Marina and we look forward to continuing to invest in our reef products and the Port Douglas region in the coming years,” he said. Quicksilver cruises daily to Agincourt ribbon reef on the very outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef and the idyllic coral island of Low Isles.
All Quicksilver’s tours are accredited with Advanced Ecotourism Certification and each day, its team of marine biologists are on hand to ensure guests gain an appreciation of the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef.
