It was a pick between silverswift and tulsa 46, we decided not to cheap out and went with these guys. From the off the service was professional. Im a certified diver and did 3 dives, the instructors Ty and Paul were excellent, professional and approachable at the same time. They remembered my name after only telling them at the beginning...

I have now been out twice with Silverswift and have been happy with them both times. The boat is big and comfortable. At the height of the schoold holidays it was a bit crowded but still plenty of space for everyone. We ended up at FLynn reef and the snorkelling experience was brilliant. Very pretty corral and lots of fish.... More

Not sure which company to book your reef tour with? Definitely go with silver swift. You spend 90mins on a comfy boat getting to the first site (snacks and drinks on board when you arrive). Then into the wAter at the first site. Spend about a hour in the water then 10mins to site 2. Then a delicious lunch (hot... More

I was fortunate enough to be able to go out on a few trips to the reef and on each occasion I went out with Silverswift. They have a professional crew with your best interests at heart, a comfy boat, morning snacks, lunch and afternoon snacks, and plenty of time to spend out at the reef at three different sites....

Recommend this one highly. You actually dive off the boat rather than from platforms or a beach as you are right out at sea and other than the guidelines by the boat staff you are able to go quite far around. Not crowded at all and 3 separate dives in different places on the reef. The staff were attentive and... More

What a great company and a great boat. This is one of the smaller boats, and much safer and better organised in our opinion. The safety briefings were excellent, and the staff very concerned for everyone's well being and ensuring that we were all having a good time! The equipment was all in excellent condition and well maintained. My only... More

First thing to say is - scuba diving with scuba swift is a fantastic day out. The boat is big, clean and comfortable with cute sun deck out back. The dives themselves were amazing. Despite bad weather on previous days the vis was good and the coral was stunning. They mixed the dive sites up too so we saw a... More

Well going out on Friday the 13th had to have some bad luck. Thankfully it was just the bad weather. Getting to the reef was a bit of an ordeal with half the folks getting sick but after that it was smooth sailing all day! Did the 3 days and our dive guide was really nice and informative.

Travelled on the silverswift last week and can't even begin to explain how great it was! Unfortunately the weather on the day wasn't fantastic which meant lots of choppy water which in turn equals lots of sick passengers. The team dealt with this so well though and are on hand with cups of water and refreshing people with sick bags... More

A friend and I booked this trip just for snorkelling. There were about 30 people on the boat and we were all separated based on our interest. We had our own snorkelling instructor -Charles, who was simply amazing. The water was so choppy on the day we planned our trip and my friend got sea sick. Charles and the crew... More
