Silversonic – Outer Reef Tour

Silversonic – Outer Reef Tour

Silversonic takes you to Agincourt Reef at the very outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. Here,  there are special reefs known as “ribbons” which run parallel to the Continental Shelf. Adjacent to the Coral Sea trench, these ribbon reefs are recongnised as the most pristine eco-systems in the reef’s environment.

Clear water provides the best possible underwater visibility, encourages rich coral growth and support spectacular marine life. With Silversonic you will visits three stunning, exclusive Agincourt ribbon reef sites, and you get to spend five hours at the Great Barrier Reef.

You can enjoy unlimited snorkelling or up to 3 certified or introductory dives. Silversonic is the only dive and snorkel vessel in Port Douglas with state-of-the-art computerized ride control, ensuring a smoother ride to the reef. Traveling at 32 knots, Silversonic spends less time getting there which means more time at the reef for you.

The Silversonic vessel features a hydraulic platform for easy water access, change rooms and hot freshwater showers, expansive sundecks, air conditioned lounge areas and a licensed bar. Also the latest dive and snorkel equipment.
