We paid extra and left from Port Douglas to dive on the outer reef and loved it. The coral is amazing. The dive staff was helpful, patient, and knowledgeable. The girl working the refreshments did not seem to enjoy her job. They push the sea sickness pills, I guess because they see so many people ruin their trip by throwing... More

Excellent staff took first time divers on memorable experience Boat is comfortable. Food was better than expected. Snorkeling equipment and scuba equipment were first rate. There was plenty of time to snorkel and you can't beat the location. My teenage son said it was one the most fun things he has ever done

We booked onto Silverswift as we wanted to go to Agincourt reef. It was a fantastic experience. Everything ran on time and your time on the reef was not rushed at all three sites. I snorkelled and my boyfriend dived ( 2 dives 1 snorkel). The coral was amazing and I felt safe when in the water as they gave... More

It was not a perfect day, as the sun was in and out of clouds, the wind was up around 20 knots, and the seas pretty were pretty rough, with 2+ meter swells on the way to and from the reef. But, the crew were all SO kind and professional, especially to those (I'd say about 1/2 the folks) who... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful day of diving with Our Divemaster, Sean. He was very knowledgeable and was able to locate many species and numerous turtles. If you are diving in the Cairns area I highly recommend using Silverswift!

If you want to snorkel/dive the great barrier reef, this is a nice company to go with. If you want to dive and see beautiful reef and exotic fish, this may not be for you. For those who are not familiar with winter in the tropics, it is trade wind season. More often then not, the seas will be choppy.... More

These guys really made my day enjoyable with their great attitudes. Even though half the boat was barfing from seasickness on the way out to the reef they never complained and handed out barf bags with smiles on their faces. The equipment was in great condition and the dives were safe and fun. The visibility wasn't great when we were... More

Our dive guide was Mex, he was informative helpful and experienced, as my son had only been diving for a few weeks he kept him close and paid attention to make sure he was listening. The dives were brilliant with white tip reef sharks, turtles, wrasse all in abundance. Thanks for a great trip, I must say though that the... More
