8:30 AM
This activity will end right where it started.Check-in is required by 8am. Cruise departs from the Reef Marina Port Douglas at 8:30am. Hotel pickups commence from 7am
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.

Excellent Intro to Diving & the Great Barrier Reef!
Paul_C
, Aug 2022
We signed up for the option of 2 introductory dives & 1 snorkel -- the three locations visited at Agincourt Reef were stunning and subsequently better than the next. We had pre-dive nerves as this was our first time with scuba diving, but our dive master Chad was excellent and provided us with all the knowledge & guidance we needed while also remaining calm & reminding us to take it slow & enjoy the experience. I highly recommend Quicksilver & will be returning to the reef with them ASAP.

Don’t be purveyors of disappointment
Richard_M
, Jul 2022
To avoid being purveyors of disappointment, let people know on booking that they may need or will need a dive medical before diving. As we had not dived for a few years due to COVID, when enquiring, I specifically asked what we needed to do to ensure we could dive and was told to drop in to your shop when we arrived in Port Douglas and we can sort it all out then. Answering a few simple questions on your pre-dive form revealed we needed to do a dive medical. We were then told the nearest certified doctor was in Cairns. On contacting this doctor we found the next available appointment was the day after our return home. We had no transport to take us to Cairns anyway. Clearly, the claim we could sort it out on arrival was simply untrue. On the vessel, the couple next to us, who had also booked many weeks ahead to do an Intro Dive, after filling out the pre-dive form were told they could not dive with out a medical. They were understandably disappointed and frustrated that you waited till they were on the boat to let them know. In both our cases, we had planned our trip well ahead and could readily have organised a medical before our arrival. The trip to the reef on SilverSonic was excellent. The food was great, as were the crew. Your booking process fails to inform people they will need a medical and shop staff who falsely claim it can all be sorted out on our arrival are greatly lacking. Please amend your online registration to include a simple questionnaire that will alert them to a requirement for a medical. Please inform your shop staff that they should not knowingly make false claims to those making enquires that will prevent them from enjoying the holiday to Port Douglas and visit to the reef that they have paid a lot on money to do and may not have another opportunity to do.

An Excellent Captain & his crew. A great day out with a well laid designed boat & snorkelling platform to see the tropical north reef in it’s stunning variations of coloured fish and corals. The catered lunch was a tropical variety to match. The Helicopter flight allowed an excellent platform to view the reef in it’s best colours. Looking forward to doing more next time. Well done! Cheers

We were blessed with a beautiful sunny and not too hot day with crystal clear water. The staff were wonderful, very friendly and approachable. It was our first time doing the intro scuba dive. Very well worth it and we even got to see a turtle that we had a photo with. That was our highlight on top of seeing the beautiful reef and sealife. I thoroughly recommend this adventure as one to put on your to do list if you're up this way!!!

Best experience ever!
Stephanie_V

My partner and I had the most amazing experience doing the outer reef tour. As a first time snorkeller in the middle of the ocean, I was hesitant, but the crew made the experience easy by giving you all equipment to make you feel comfortable. By the end of the day my life jacket was off and I had no noodle to hold on to. Best experience ever would do it again!! The first reef was the best one!

The staff were excellent, it shows they enjoy their job, very friendly and helpful. The dive and snorkel areas we went to were great but wished we saw a bit more variety but that’s nature. The fish life was in abundance. Food supplied was excellent.

FANTASTIC

What a wonderful crew. So informative and friendly. They took the time to make sure I was feeling comfortable in the water and made sure I saw some amazing sites. The coral and fish were stunning. The Reef is looking amazing now and well recovered from what we were told. The 3 reefs we were taken to were amazing...each one different from the other. The food was one of the best you get on any tour, plentiful. The vessel is well kept and clean. Could not fault anything at all. Will definitely recommend to others this company and tour and would do it again in a heart beat.

Crew and food was good. 1 out of 3 of the dive sites was worthwhile, the other two were overcrowded and visibility was average. Can’t blame the crew for that.

Bianca_P

My husband, 3 kids snd myself had an incredible time on the reef with silversonic. This is the second time I have been with them and both times the staff went over and above what is expected of them. Lots of great food available most of the day. Both times I have been I saw at least 20 times more fish than I ever. saw on previous reef trips with other companies (to the inner reef). I can’t recommend them highly enough.
