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.

Worth every penny, this may be slightly more expensive than some other trips but it's worth it. The crew are very friendly, efficient and know their stuff. We got to see minke whales, reef sharks and turtles along with lots of other fish and coral....More

Excellent staff, excellent equipment and amazing diving. Taking off, the weather ashore was fairly blustery and we were concerned with weather conditions out on the reef. Even though the ride out was pretty choppy, the dive sites themselves were reasonably calm. A bit of overcast...More
