What to expect
  • Explore the outer reaches of the Great Barrier Reef with this full-day adventure to Agincourt Reef, which sits at the edge of the Continental Shelf. After pickup from your Port Douglas hotel, board a comfortable 95-foot (29-meter) catamaran and settle in among the inside cabin seats or sun decks for the scenic ride out to the reef.  Throughout the day, visit three renowned dive sites that the cruise has exclusive access to, and customize your adventure with different options for exploring the reef. If you prefer to stay close to the surface, splash into the clear waters with provided snorkeling equipment and either snorkel on your own or join a guided tour. Or, go even deeper with a scuba experience. Beginning divers can try an introductory dive, and those with scuba certification can embark on up to three certified dives.  No matter what you choose, you’ll get an up-close perspective on the spectacular ribbon reef teaming with an array of marine life such as schools of tropical fish, small reef sharks, massive coral formations and giant clams weighing up to 440 pounds (200 kg)! When you come to the surface, recharge with a delicious buffet lunch on board, and break for morning and afternoon tea. Grab a drink from the fully licensed bar if you’d like something stronger (own expense), and stay comfortable with facilities including restrooms and freshwater showers. After approximately 5 hours at the reef, relax and soak up views of the Coral Sea on the return trip to Port Douglas.  Note: Book early to secure your spot, and enjoy a flexible reservations policy that allows you to change the date of your tour at no additional charge once you arrive in Port Douglas.

This was an amazing day with great weather and people. Our Dive Master, Gordon did an amazing job and guided us through 2 x 45 minute dives - he was just a ripper bloke and full of local knowledge about the dive area and what we would see. A big thanks to the entire crew who made the day sensational and to Gordon for his skills and attention to detail.

We spent the day out at Agincourt Reef aboard Silversonic and had a great day.
We booked 3 certified dives and were allocated Gordon as our dive guide. Gordon was friendly, professional and made sure everyone was safe and comfortable. We had a mix of experience in our group of 8, but Gordon ensured the novice divers went back to the boat when required and the more experienced divers were able to continue for longer.
The stinger suits and dive equipment were included in the price, so we just took our own masks and dive computers.
The buffet lunch was very good, lots of food and a decent selection of hot and cold dishes was provided.
Overall it was a very good day, all of the staff were friendly and accommodating.

My partner and I went out for a day trip to Agincourt Reef with Silversonic. We had booked 3 dives in advance. The boat is very comfortable, however, as stated in previous reviews, when the boat is full, there is not enough indoor seating, which was relevant on our trip as we had a lot of rain that day. It makes it hard to fill in your paperwork (not enough tables) or eat comfortably. In light of Covid we (and others) also had to sit with strangers. Due to the nature of the trip, people also had a lot of stuff with them, i.e. big bags with towels, hats, spare clothes, sunscreen etc, which took up a lot of room all over the boat.

Otherwise tha trip is well organized, patrons were divided into their respective groups (Snorkelers, Learner Divers and Experienced Divers) and briefed and set up separately. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is always Food and Water available at a small, buffet style station. Lunch was good.

If you're planning on diving, I would suggest to only book 2 dives, as it does give you time for snorkeling as well. We didn't get a chance to snorkel, unless we skipped lunch. The Dive sites were nice, easy diving, the water was warm.

Great day out on the water with the family. It was awesome to go to 3 different dive sites and get 3 dives in over the day. Gordon was an excellent dive instructor, he really looked after our group. Highly recommend this tour.

A one in a life time experience which the Silversonic team made happen. I needed a little more time to get comfortable with the dive itself, Liam took the time to slow things down for me. His patience, love for diving and kind nature made this day one to never forget. I will go back again and again whenever I visit the Port Douglas region. Highly recommended for all. Thank you Liam and team.

The whole crew was fantastic and made sure we were all comfortable. the food was great too.

we had perfect weather and 5 knot winds. I Went for my fist ever dive today with gordo. What a legend. He made sure we all stayed safe and had a great time. The reefs we seen were full of marine life going about their day.

My wife and son went snorkelling and both had the best time of their lives also. We all came back to our accommodation and traded our highlight story's.

Thank you to everyone at silversonic for the unforgettable memories we now have .

An amazing day out with the crew from Quicksilver. The overall package and value is exceptional which I would recommend to everyone. Snorkel sites were perfect with coral, fish, turtles and sharks all sited. Very knowledgeable and fun team who were engaging.

SilverSonic is a very commercialised operation. Very crowded onboard given Covid-19 restrictions. Impossible to maintain 1.5m social distancing whilst onboard. The company still went ahead with self-serve buffet onboard (I was informed that no self-serve buffet onboard when booking). Constant reminder to all passengers to check in with QLD Covid Safe App at the service desk at the Marina but no evidence of any social distancing onboard is shocking.

Almost impossible to hear the guide explaining about the reef out at the deck.

Reef sites were average with fair amount of bleaching noted. Average amount of marine life despite swimming for about 100m away from the SilverSonic docking site. Final reef site was the most exciting but had the least amount of time to explore.

Service: fair
Ambience: none
Food: plentiful but average in quality
Overall experience: Average

Would definitely not recommend to anyone looking for a personalised experience. Suitable for those who are just looking for basic transportation out to Agincourt Reef.
