Overview

Silversonic, a 29m luxury catamaran, is custom-designed for small groups of adventure-minded people to revel in the thrill of diving and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. Adventurers will spend 5 hours visiting 3 different reef sties at the renowned Agincourt ribbon reef. Choose snorkelling, introductory diving or up to 3 certified dives. We’re all about less people, more reef destinations, and a crew who knows the reef like the locals they are.

Had a great time on the reef, but my advice is to take seasickness tablets before you get on the boat- even if you’ve never been seasick before. I became sick about 30mins into the outward trip, despite never having suffered from seasickness before. Many...More

A great day out was provided by Silversonic. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, the ship and food were great and the choice of sites was also fantastic. We had our 19 month old boy with us who was welcomed.
