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.

Went on the 3-day/night liveaboard trip to the Ribbon reefs with a group of members of my dive club. Staff on the trip could not have been better in ensuring a safe and interesting/varied and comfortable trip (as best they could given the 30+ knot winds!!)Very marine-safe organisation. Great and plentiful food. Plenty of space on the dive deck. Equipment provided appeared to be very good quality, for those without own gear.definitely would go again!

We’ve just been dropped off from a 3-day liveaboard trip and could not be happier. The crew was beautiful — incredibly aware and buttoned up, but also friendly and fun. Safety was clearly always paramount. Food was delicious, beautiful, and plentiful, with lots of salads to complement the mains. We slept so well. The dives were as gorgeous and lush as we’d hoped, and appropriate for our newly certified sim, as well as experienced divers. The vibe on the boat comes from the top, and it’s a great one. Thank you Leighton, Matthieu, Roberto, Flo, Joseph, and off course, the bacon master, Marius!

We hadn't done a liveaboard trip for a few years, so were really excited for our adveture with Pro Dive Cairns to dive the GBR just before leaving Australia to return to our home country. We were not disappointed! The boat (Scubapro III) was well laid out with enough space and facilities for the 24 divers plus instructors/dive masters & crew. The food was tasty and plentiful, prepared by the young, cheerful cook Casper and there was always something warm to eat after each dive. As for the dives themselves, it was very wet on the surface (we were there during the heavy rains in May) so on the first day the light was a bit gloomy at depth, but it was still a delight to to dive Milln Reef and see how much marine life there was. The sun came out on Day 2 when we were diving Flynn Reef which was perfect so we could see the beautiful coral gardens. One thing that surprised us was that we were told, as certified divers, we were pretty much on our own to navigate the dive sites as there weren't enough dive masters to lead us. As we've recently been used to being lead on dives it was slightly unnerving, however in the end it was actually great as it forced us to refresh our navigation skills and the dive sites were carefully selected for easier diving so no worries at all! We always managed to navigate back to the boat :-)) The entire crew did a great job, and were very strict with security protocols, to ensure that everyone was onboard after each dive site. We felt secure and well looked after at all times. We highly recommend diving with Pro Dive Cairns!
