What an amazing day out on the reef! Three stops to different parts of the outer reef all on the well maintained, smooth and quite Silversonic vessel. The instructors are very knowledgeable, friendly and thorough. My Partner and I had never dived before and where made to feel very safe with a little light humor to take the edge off but safety was paramount. Food was tasty and plentiful. All in all Silversonic staff made our first diving/reef experience unforgettable for all the right reasons. Thank you.
