One-day Great Barrier Reef Trip
Aboard Silversonic
Quicksilver Dive

© Quicksilver Dive

Book This Trip

This trip is aboard Silversonic, a 95 foot Catamaran with a maximum of 80 divers and a Dive Staff of 8. It is for 1 day, and allows 3 dives.

Departure Information
Departure is from Marina Mirage, Port Douglas at 8:30 AM every day, return time 4:30 PM.

The Dive

Quicksilver Dive has skillfully outfitted and organized Silversonic to assure you have the best day possible out on the reef. The speed of the boat means you get to spend over five hours out on the reef, and can reach dive locations out of the range of other dive boats. Divers are able to make three scuba dives and snorkelers have ample time to explore the area. A roving permit allows the skipper to select from 22 different dive moorings to find the two dive sites that will provide the best diving of the day.

The high staff ration of no more than 1 staff per 8 guests enables them to spend more time caring for their guests. All scuba dives are guided. There is an extensive introductory scuba dive program, so snorkelers can make their first ever scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef. The food service on board is excellent, with a four-star breakfast and lunch served on board. © Quicksilver Dive

The Boat

The Silversonic, launched in 2006, is one of the newest and fastest dive boats in the Port Douglas fleet. A 95-foot powered catamaran capable of cruising at 28 knots, it makes the trip out to the reef in just 70 minutes, which gives you more time on the reef. High-tech ride control technology makes for the smoothest ride possible out to the reef.

Silversonic, while licensed to carry many more passengers, takes a maximum of 80 visitors out to the reef. This means there is extra space for everyone, and guarantees that there will be a ratio of 8 persons per crewmember or better.

Small details of the boat also make a difference. Fresh water showers enable divers to rinse off themselves and their gear. We like the fact that there are multiple change rooms onboard, as well as a submerged dive platform that allows for easy entrances exits by divers and snorkelers.
