We searched through many brochures before deciding which trip out to the reef we would take to snorkel. We are so glad we chose this one. We had 5 hours at the Reef and went to 3 different reefs during that time. You had a choice of snorkelling or diving. They had all up to date equipment and it was... More

We had a fantastic day out on the Great Barrier Reef when diving with Silverswift. There was three of us heading out with them, two divers and one snorkeler. The check-in line at the terminal building was chaotic and a nightmare so get there early, however once on board it was smooth sailing...sort of (bumpy seas). The boat left on... More

Awesome day out on the reef. Great snorkelling sites, informative staff, great equipment hire and the food supplied is awesome! Definitely the best boat I've been out on.

I did a lot of research prior to deciding on Silverswift for our snorkelling trip to the reef. I had very high expectations due to Tripadvisor reviews and a friend who had already taken this tour. The day started out with us having to stand in a long, slow line waiting to board as it started to rain. The hold... More

The Silverswift ship together with the divemasters and dive sites chosen were very good. The new-ish dive gear included dive computers. Some of the crew members, however, were very unfriendly, racist even, plus forget the bus transfer option. It's combined with the owner's other tour companies meaning that the bus schedule is not linked to your sailing. In the evening... More

We went out as a group of 4, my hubby & I are locals, with another couple visiting from Melbourne. All of us are certified divers and were keen to take up the possibility of 3 dives. Although it seemed over half the passengers heading out were sick, staff were very helpful! We found the dive brief the most helpful... More

All staff are very friendly and helpful and professional. From the food (morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea) to all the dive gears, the staff prepared well for everyone. Very great experience, definitely come back if I visit Cairns again. The reef they brought me to is amazing! Thank you silver swift!

The SilverSwift is perfect if you enjoy small groups rather than the massive tours. The boat itself is quite accommodating with space to sun-bake and relaxing indoors with A/C. The food provided was tasty every time ! (Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea). The Staff was amazing! The captain was really friendly, the asian woman and the french girl from... More

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
