silversonic diving day trip

Departing daily from Port Douglas. When you step aboard the ultramodern Silversonic, you are set for an exhilarating day of fun, discovery, and adventure in the natural wonderland of The Great Barrier Reef. You'll have access to explore three stunning and exclusive reef sites at the renowned Agincourt ribbon reefs, each chosen for visual and ecological diversity for your dive and snorkel adventures.

Silversonic is an ultra-modern 29-metre catamaran that visits the outer edge reef locations in the Agincourt Reef complex, and offers superb style and comfort for the journey. Cruising to the reef on Port Douglas' fastest vessel, you'll enjoy over five hours exploring the delights of The Great Barrier Reef. Silversonic's ride control system ensures your trip is super smooth, even when travelling at speeds of up to 32 knots.

The experienced and knowledgeable crew will select 3 sites out of more than 35 exclusive locations on Agincourt Reef, choosing the best sites on the day according to the weather conditions - you won't find any other operator on The Great Barrier Reef who has that many sites to choose from!

The vessel is well equipped for all levels of diving and snorkelling. Certified divers have the option to do up to three dives, and introductory divers can enjoy up to two dives, with no experience required. If you are a snorkeller, you are assured plenty of diversity with three different snorkel locations to explore. In between water activities, passengers can relax on the spacious sundecks overlooking the Great Barrier Reef.

The crew onboard will ensure you have all you need to make the most of your day, which includes full bar facilities, a hot and cold tropical buffet lunch, fresh water showers, and morning and afternoon tea.

Please Note: some medical conditions may prevent you diving and you will be required to complete a waiver and medical statement prior to the trip. If you have recently/continue to suffer from an illness or condition that may affect your dive fitness,  or are currently taking any prescription medication, you will need to consult a doctor for a 'fit to dive' medical certificate.

Excellent safe scuba diving. Beautiful outer reef.

My wife and I really enjoyed our minke whale liveaboard trip. Our dive master Matthieu was excellent and made sure we well looked after. We were only recently certified open water PADI divers with limited experience and Matthieu made sure we were comfortable and confident in scuba diving on the reef day and night dives despite crazy winds and waves. About half way through we felt confident enough to go on our own and enjoy the wonderful outer reef. Overall, great experience on the liveaboard. The minke whales were elusive but the reef encounter and night dives we're stunning and highly memorable. Also, special thanks to the prodive crew for keeping us safe despite the inclement weather and allowing us to safely dive as much as possible. We thank God for the safe and stunning trip in His beautiful creation. Highly recommended!

Amazing dive course and liveaboards

We did two liveaboard trips with ProDive Cairns, almost back to back, including doing my Open Water Dive Course. Both trips were well organised, the gear was all great, the staff were fun and of course all the dive sites were incredible. Our second trip was the Minke Whale trip and we were lucky enough to spend about 7 hours with the whales, pretty much getting in and out of the water as much as we wanted. For the open water course my instructor, Michael, was super patient and thorough got me from nervous in the swimming pool to even going on to do the Adventure course in the space of 5 days. Even the food was great on both trips. Would highly recommend ProDive Cairns to anyone who wants to see the reef or learn to dive.
