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.

Awsome adventure awaits
From start to finish the staff/crew were awsome. Helpful and informative.
We were down for snorkelling and an introductory dive. Since making the booking my eldest had some health issues and was declined diving. Which we expected and was the right decision. Then my youngest became sea sick on the way out to the reef so none of us then dived. Our choice. However the crew couldn't do enough to assist and even refunded our dive costs.
We then snorkeled at 3 locations, all awsome. Each had there own briefing and what we might see whilst snorkelling.
All in all a great day out/adventure and if in Port make the trip top of your list.

Great day out to Agincourt reef
Apr 2021
We went an Silversonic for a combo dive + snorkel day (I dived, my wife and children snorkelled).
The day was excellent. I dived the Agincourt reefs and was delighted to see that the reef was in excellent condition. Our guide (who was excellent) explained that the bleaching event occurred ~10 years ago on the northern part of the reef and the recovery is now such that the reef is very healthy again. I don't remember the exact dive sites, but we dived a bombie (underwater pillar) which was excellent, plus a couple of deeper dives along the edge of the reef. We saw reef sharks on every dive plus smaller treats like clown fish and scorpion fish.
The rest of my family loved the snorkelling too. A juvenile reef shark turned up for one snorkel, which made everyone's day. They also saw turtles and tons of smaller fish.
Silversonic were very efficient and safe - the food was good, the instructors were great. I would recommend this outfit without hesitation.

Intro dives
Signed up for two intro dives and what a fantastic experience, great crew with a dive guide that really made you feel confident when diving. A great experience that will now see me progress to get my Open water on my next trip up and I can’t wait.

The dive sites are so awesome.

Really good day
I intended to snorkel as have not dived in a few years. Immediately, on board, I changed my mind. They were so good to let me dive and incredibly caring as I was nervous. The nerves went straight away and the dives were lovely. The operation to get everyone sorted with equipment and into the water is smooth. The dive instructors were knowledgeable and keen to share about the reef. They even set up the tanks. I took a preventative seasick pill, which was sold on board. No issues. Lunch was the only thing average. Highly recommended!

Couldn’t be faulted
This was by far the highlight of our trip - the Silversonic cruise was well staffed, professionally operated and logistically sound. The customer service/friendliness of the staff was excellent and everyone certainly seemed safe and comfortable. The snorkel gear was without fault, food services had a variety, sea sickness tablets available onboard and the onboard marine talk was also great. Only suggestions to Silversonic would be to have an acknowledgment of Country during the tour info/briefing and an info sheet about their dedication to covid safety and cleanliness especially as they’re dealing with face/mouth/body equipment. We highly recommend booking Silversonic or another ‘Quicksilver Group’ tour with in QLD
