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.

Boats are well-maintained and staffed with excellent people. For the most part, the staff leave the certified divers alone to dive at their leisure which is how an experienced diver wants it. The boat is quite comfy and serves excellent food. It can get frustrating...
