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.

We chose the Silversonic boat because it is smaller than some of the boats. The large boats can take up to 440 passengers whilst the Silversonic takes a maximum of 90 on a boat designed for 140 so there was a feeling of space onboard....More

From the first moment upon meeting our Divemaster Gordon, we knew we were going to be well looked after. From the dive brief to getting kitted up and entering the water he was brilliant. He was able to pass on lots of knowledge and advice...More
