Next, we choose Silvesonic.

Port Douglas based Silversonic has access to 29 various Agincourt ribbon reef locations.  This reef day tour visits three sites each day.

Silversonic is a part of the Silver Series fleet.  One of the few operators that possess a marine park authority permit, allowing guests to swim with Dwarf Minke Whales.

If the Dwarf Minke whales are encountered during a day trip, it is usually between July to September.

Silversonic travels at a top speed of 32 knots which means less time getting to the reef, resulting in five actual hours of reef time.
