Here, I introduce a User Defined Function for you to average visible cells only.

1. Press Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. And click Insert > Module, then paste below VBA code to the new Module window.

VBA: Average visible/filtered cells only.

Function AverVisible(Rg As Range)
    Dim xCell As Range
    Dim xCount As Integer
    Dim xTtl As Double
    Set Rg = Intersect(Rg.Parent.UsedRange, Rg)
    For Each xCell In Rg
        If xCell.ColumnWidth > 0 _
          And xCell.RowHeight > 0 _
          And Not IsEmpty(xCell) _
          And IsNumeric(xCell.Value) Then
              xTtl = xTtl + xCell.Value
              xCount = xCount + 1
        End If
    If xCount > 0 Then
        AverVisible = xTtl / xCount
        AverVisible = 0
    End If
End Function

3. And save the code and close the Module window, and select a blank cell which out put the calculate result, type this formula =AverVisible(B3:B19), and press Enter key to get the correct result. See screenshots:
