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.

A day with Silversonic is all about being in the water and experiencing the magical underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. It’s exciting, exotic and breathtaking!

Silversonic visits a selection of 22 stunning & exclusive reef sites at the Agincourt ribbon reefs.
You’ll have access to explore three of these stunning and exclusive reef sites at the renowned Agincourt ribbon reefs, each chosen for visual and ecological diversity for your dive and snorkel adventures.

Access to the water is easy with the large submerged platform, relax on the spacious deck areas, there’s hot freshwater showers, change rooms and even a licensed bar to share tales of your adventure on the homeward journey.

As an added bonus during the whale season, Silversonic has one of the few permits available from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority that allows their guests to swim with dwarf minke whales if encountered – a truly unforgettable experience!

Snorkelling

Silversonic has roaming permits and remote sites, you’ll be able to snorkel three uniquely different and ecologically diverse reef sites, each chosen to suit the day’s conditions. As coral relies on sunlight for growth, some of the best snorkelling is in the shallow areas around the reef top.

With a guided snorkel tour included, snorkel briefs at each reef site and lifeguard snorkel officers supervising, you’ll be able to explore the underwater delights in complete safety.
If you haven’t snorkelled before, that’s ok! Their crew will be on hand to give you instruction but they do recommend you have the ability to swim and fairly good fitness as snorkelling can be a strenuous activity. Flotation devices and buoyancy vests are available on board if needed. Prescription masks are also available at no extra cost.

It is a wonderful, exciting and indeed memorable experience to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

Introductory Divers 

So you’d like to take the plunge! With an Introductory Dive (or sometimes known as a “Discover Dive” or “Resort Dive”), no previous experience is necessary and you’ll be able to experience the excitement of scuba diving whilst under very close supervision of an instructor.

Their onboard and highly skilled dive instructors will take you step by step through the whole experience, from the dive briefing lecture, the equipment and the dive, to ensure all facets of your dive are comfortable and most of all enjoyable.

Once at the Reef, it’s out to the dive deck and ready to gear up! Your instructor will make sure you’re comfortable with the basic skills again and you’re ready for your underwater adventure!

The instructor is by your side the whole time and you can even link arms if you feel the need. Your dive experience will generally last around 30 minutes underwater, and if you’re hooked by the end of, you’ve got the option to try a second introductory dive at another site to experience a whole new reef environment!

Certified Divers: 

As a certified diver, you can enjoy up to three spectacular dives, experiencing three different Great Barrier Reef environments when you travel with the Silver Series for your dive adventure. With the most extensive range of dive sites to visit daily, divers of all levels from novice to experienced will be excited by the range of experiences their magnificent sites present including drift and wall dives, bommie and pinnacle, coral gardens and swim throughs.
