The outer reef is truly amazing in its clarity and diversity of colors, textures and life. The Silverswift is a fast, comfortable boat with changing rooms, and things were nicely organized so that both divers and snorkelers got equal attention and their own area to enter and exit the water. As a family of two each, we know by experience... More

A very well organised trip to some of the best diving I have experienced. Everyone should do a dive on the Great Barrier Reef during their lifetime. Ty and his divemasters were very professional and helpful finding Nemos, sharks, turtles and Moray eels in a marine wonderland. Great day.

What an experience I will never forget. The minute we got on board we felt at home. Dive spots were spectacular, food was fantastic and lots of. Soup was a great idea after getting out the water. At one of the dive spots we did a 30min snorkel guided tour with DaveO that was excellent. Awesome day spent with SilverSwift

I can't speak to the snorkeling, but the dives my husband and I did were fantastic. I was not scuba certified and was able to do 3 introductory dives. These dives were plenty deep enough to see all the reef had to offer. We went to 3 different sites on the great barrier reef. My husband, who is scuba certified,... More

Crossed it off the bucket list, swam with fish, sharks, eels, even a turtle! Perfect weather, saw Whales on the way back. Crew were both incredibility professional and engaging, some of the most friendly people I've meet in a while (Looking at you Ty :) ). Exceed my every expectation, would highly recommend!

Amazing day trip out to the Great Barrier Reef with top diving and snorkelling spots. Saw turtles, sharks and lots of other wildlife during the three dives I did, as well as being lucky enough to spot two humpback whales on the way back to Cairns - thanks again to the captain for spotting them and stopping to let us...

A well organised day trip to three reef locations, suitable for all ages. Fantastic smooth ride on the cat out to the reef, only took 1 hour. Friendly staff ready to assist, a must do activity when in Cairns.

We chose Silverswift after a couple of recommendations from fellow backpackers. It might be a little more expensive than some of the other companies operating on the Great Barrier Reef, but we came away from the experience absolutely beaming and so impressed with both of our introductory dives and snorkeling. After a bad first introductory diving experience on the Whitsundays,... More

If you want a fun and exciting great barrier reef experience, this is it! We did a day of snorkelling on the Flynn reef and it was absolutely amazing. The corals were plentiful and amazing. There were so many fishes and different types of fishes and we even saw a sea turtle. The ship we sailed on was nice with... More
