Snorkelling trip was great
Snorkelling trip was great. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, also very helpful when my wife got sick on the boat trip. All three sites were varied in layout and wildlife.

Great Barrier Reef Day Trip
The instructions on how to snorkel and the best locations were very helpful. Really enjoyed the variety of the reef life that we saw at the 3 locations. Highly recommend this tour.

The three reef sites were amazing
My friend and I really enjoyed our day with the Silversonic team. They were friendly, knowledgable and very helpful. The three reef sites were amazing, and I preferred this reef trip to that which I did from Cairns.

The Cape Tribulation is beautiful and the daintree is just stunning especially when you get to see Crocodiles in their natural habitat. The guide we had Daniel was funny and gave great information about the history around the Daintree, Cape Trib and Port Douglas.
