We went out with the diving and snorkeling boat silverswift. I payed for snorkeling and one intro dive about 270 AUD. We went to the Flynn Reef and they took us to amazing spots. It was my first time at the Great Barrier Reef, but thas was amazing! Even just snorkelling you could really see a lot! The Intro Dive:... More

We dove3 times on Flynn's Reef with The Silverswift. It is the best dive boat we have ever been on! It had compressed air aboard so it was not necessary to change tanks between dives as well as back up equipment. The food was good and the diving great. The divemaster (Marcus) made sure we saw everything available. We had... More

My girlfriend and I both really enjoyed diving off the Silver Swift at Flynn Reef in early Aug 2014. Simon was my girlfriend's instructor for the intro dive. He was incredibly patient and caring, a heck of a nice guy. She was a little reluctant to dive but Simon gave her the confidence she needed to succeed. As a result,... More

This trip took us to the outer reef, called Flynn's reef. The boat just stops in the middle of the ocean!! We went to three different locations on this reef to make sure that we had the maximum opportunities to see the different things the reef has to offer. We found Nemo, Dory, and saw a turlte, reef sharks (they're... More

I'm quite late in sharing my review. I highly recommend Silverswift out of Cairns. My husband and I were in Australia in March 2012 (not 2014-it wouldn't let me go back that far) on business and it was my dream to go to the Great Barrier Reef. As luck would have it a downgraded Cyclone (literally) was rolling over Cairns/the... More

This tour out on the great barrier reef was just perfect. The boat was safe, great, and not too full! The crue is paying a lot of attention at your safety. Snorkeller or diver – doesn’t matter! I did this tour with my father and it was his first snorkel trip in the ocean. He felt well prepared after a... More

The Great barrier reef is a beautiful place to snorkel or dive. the visability was 20m, excelltent. i chose this company because they advertised in their brochure a permit to go in the water with whales if they see some. August is in the middle of the whale viewing season. they didnt even mention whales on the boat, and certainly... More

Had a fantastic experience on Silverswift. The boat was really clean and comfortable (remember to take sea sickness pills as EVERYONE was getting seasick!) The support from the staff was fantastic, they were very helpful and kind, particularly as I hadn't dived for a long time before this trip. The equipment was all clean, great too that it's included in... More

The whole trip felt well organised and was very smooth. Although it's a shame that I can't say the same about the sea conditions on the boat journey out to the reef, the staff were extremely helpful to those suffering from sea sickness. I had pre-booked one introductory dive as it was my first time diving so I wasn't too... More

Excellent service! Great dive masters! Beautiful dive spots! So well organized did 3 dives without any issues getting in and out of the water and stayed down for approximately 45 min's each dive with only 7 people in our group of certified divers. The food was wonderful with hot coffee and tea all day long anytime you wanted it. Fantastic... More
