The trip out was a little rough, and quite a few people got seasick. If you are prone to seasickness, take a seasickness pill and stay on lower deck. The first snorkel/dive site was the most challenging with a very strong current. Many snorkelers had to be "rescued" with zodiac boat. But, the coral and marine life were fantastic. On... More

Our group of 5 had a great day with the Silverswift crew. We had 3 snorklers, 1 new diver, and 1 certified diver. Everyone had a good time. The boat is smaller and faster than the other outfits which is a huge plus and worth the extra money. They get you out to the farthest part of the reef. We... More

What a wonderful day! Fantastic crew, boat, food, and snorkeling. The boat isn't overly huge, so that amount of people isn't bad. The snorkeling spots were great! Three stops on the outer reef.Snorkel/dive sites were incredible. We were rather impressed with the equipment as well. Not your typical 'junk' rental gear. They also provide skin suits which is nice. The... More

First time on the GBR and had a superb time. The dive master (Ty) was exceptional as was all the crew. The dive master provided a really informative briefing before the dives and was always willing to help us get into our gear before each dive. He made me feel relaxed about diving and gave some great tips to improve... More

Me and 3 friends thoroughly enjoyed a full day of diving on the reef. This crew did an amazing job making sure everyone was comfortable and had everything they needed. The dives were great and very professionally done. I would use them again in the future.

It was our first experience diving the great barrier reef and the service was flawless. On time, with a great boat, excellent food and staff we really enjoyed the trip. The staff was very helpful, professional and knew a lot about the natural history of the reef. They were very accommodating since we came back two days in a row,... More

Thanks our guide Karena for taking care of us in the 3 dives! We managed to see 5-6 sea turtles in the Great Barrier Reef with Karena's expertise! Excellent job! The Silverswift is very well built for diving, very organized and spacious!
