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.

Beware of the package trip of OW+AOW

Before the trip, we’ve called to the ProDive and check the trip we booked. They said it is a package of OW and AOW. But after the trip, ProDive charge us for extra money and said that AOW was not included in the package. Furthermore, the ‘AOW’ is not the Advanced Open Water, is Adventure Open Water, which I never heard before. And then they said if we want to get Advanced Open Water, we have to finish another 5 dives, which is impossible for us to finish in this trip. Although the staff on boat is wonderful, but the experience is poor at the end.

The experience of a lifetime

Booked the Open water/Adventure dive course. Spent 2 days in the dive centre learning in the pool and completing theory. Spent 3 days 2 nights on the reef. What an experience. Mike was our instructor in the pool and on our first five dives on the reef including 1 night dive. Excellent knowledge of diving and a brilliant instructor throughout. Calm, cool and collected. Reassured my gf when she was slightly panicking during a mask exercise. Calmed her down and she completed the task. Our other instructor was Kevin. Kevin completed the theory with us in the class room and instructed us on our last couple of dives which were a deep dive and an underwater navigational dive. Like Mike, he was relaxed and full of knowledge but also the funniest man on the reef. Had the entire boat laughing from start to finish. A great character. The staff on board were also fantastic. Marine made us delicious food at regular intervals to keep us full of energy for our action filled days. Special mention also to Matty, Courtney, Caro and Chris. Extremely nice people and provided a great atmosphere to learn to dive. Will 100% be back to dive again with Pro dive Cairns. An experience of a lifetime. Thank you and all the best, Cathal and Elaine.

Great trip, great crew, great experience

Must do activity when in Cairns, the weather condition was spotless, and the crew were professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Big thanks to Kevin, Michael, Courtney, Marine, Matt, Chris, and, Carol for looking after us so well, keeping us entertained, and keeping us safe.The liveaboard trip is just unreal and well worth your money. If you are looking to do your open water licence, then look no further as the crew's knowledge and skills were extensive and will benefits you for the years to come.
