Departing daily from Port Douglas… When you step aboard the ultramodern Silversonic, you are set for an exhilarating day of fun, discovery and adventure in the natural wonderland of the Great Barrier Reef.

You’ll have access to explore three stunning and exclusive reef sites at the renowned Agincourt ribbon reefs, each chosen  for visual and ecological diversity for your dive and snorkel adventures.

And you’ll be doing it in comfort and style! With our friendly and knowledgeable crew, Silversonic has everything you’ll need to experience an underwater world of colourful marine life in safety. Access to the water is so easy with the large submerged platform, relax on the spacious deck areas, there’s hot freshwater showers, change rooms and even a licensed bar to share tales of your adventure on the homeward journey.

As an added bonus during the whale season, Silversonic has one of the few permits available from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority that allows our guests to swim with dwarf minke whales if encountered – a truly unforgettable experience!

Snorkelling

A day with Silversonic and Silverswift is all about being in the water and experiencing the magical underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef. It’s exciting, exotic and breathtaking!

With our roaming permits and remote sites, you’ll be able to snorkel three uniquely different and ecologically diverse reef sites, each chosen to suit the day’s conditions. As coral relies on sunlight for growth, some of the best snorkelling is in the shallow areas around the reef top.

With a guided snorkel tour included, snorkel briefs at each reef site and lifeguard snorkel officers supervising, you’ll be able to explore the underwater delights in complete safety. Access to the water is so easy with Silversonic and Silverswift’s large submerged platforms from the back decks.

If you haven’t snorkelled before, that’s ok! Our crew will be on hand to give you instruction but we do recommend the ability to swim and fairly good fitness as snorkelling can be a strenuous activity. Flotation devices and buoyancy vests are available on board if needed. Prescription masks are also available at no extra cost.

To learn more about the marine life around you, make sure you join the guided snorkel tour, as the marine interpreter guides you over shallow coral gardens, pointing out fish and marine life, corals and areas of interest along the way.

It is a wonderful, exciting and indeed memorable experience to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

Certified Diving

As a certified diver, you can enjoy up to three spectacular dives, experiencing three different Great Barrier Reef environments when you travel with the Silver Series for your dive adventure.  With the most extensive range of dive sites to visit daily, divers of all levels from novice to experienced, will be excited by the range of experiences our magnificent sites present including drift and wall dives, bommie and pinnacle, coral gardens and swim throughs.

Our professional instructors accompany all dives at no extra charge, ensuring maximum safety and enjoyment. They have intimate local knowledge of the reef systems we visit and are passionate about sharing this! Certified dives last approximately 40 minutes or more.

The Great Barrier Reef is an iconic destination and is a diver’s dream.  The warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef, with temperatures ranging from 22-29 Celsius (75-85 Fahrenheit), makes for comfortable scuba diving all year round.

The Great Barrier Reef’s ecosystem supports the greatest concentration of life on this planet including 1,500 species of fish, 400 different kinds of corals, 4000 species of molluscs and 10,000 species of sponges.

As a Certified diver, you’ll need to present proof of certification.

If you’d like to experience more of the Great Barrier Reef’s amazing diversity, we offer packages to experience both Silversonic and Silverswift, or even a 3 Day / 2 Night Liveaboard Dive Trip with Pro Dive Cairns. www.prodivecairns.com

Introductory Diving

So you’d like to take the plunge! With an Introductory Dive (or sometimes known as a “Discover Dive” or “Resort Dive”), no previous experience is necessary and you’ll be able to experience the excitement of scuba diving whilst under very close supervision of an instructor.

Our onboard and highly skilled dive instructors will take you step by step through the whole experience, from the dive briefing lecture, the equipment and the dive, to ensure all facets of your dive are comfortable and most of all enjoyable.

On the outward journey to the Reef, instructors assess the suitability of potential introductory divers and you’ll be required complete the necessary paperwork which includes a medical questionnaire. You’ll be taught fundamentals of scuba diving as well as the use of equipment. There’s a video to watch and a quick quiz to complete. All equipment, including wetsuits and prescription masks (if required) are included in the price of the introductory dive.

Once at the Reef, it’s out to the dive deck and ready to gear up! Your instructor will make sure you’re comfortable with the basic skills again and you’re ready for your underwater adventure! The Great Barrier Reef is more about shallow scuba diving and your dive may take you as deep as 12 metres (40 feet).

The instructor is by your side the whole time and you can even link arms if you feel the need. Your dive experience will generally last around 30 minutes underwater, and if you’re hooked by the end of, you’ve got the option to try a second introductory dive at another site to experience a whole new reef environment!

After your dive experience, you’ll get a PADI Certificate as a memento of your underwater adventure. This certificate is not a qualification – it is simply a memento of one of the best experiences of your life. To get a recognised qualification you will need to complete a Learn to Dive Course. www.prodivecairns.com
