This was my second reef trip. The first trip was with Reef Magic about a year ago. Out of the 3 sites we visited, two were underwhelming and unspectacular. and I have to look very hard for corals and fishes. The third site was great that resembled postcard pictures of reef and fish. There was diving instruction on board on... More

I used a few companies for snorkelling in Cairns, and although they were all great, silver swift had the best sites. Managed to spot a turtle, reef shark and bull ray, the 2nd site they used was excellent, wish we could have spent the whole time at that one site! The boat is comfy, lots of sun deck space, and...

I had low expectations for this trip as it was raining in Cairns and was worried about visibility. The trip out to the reef was very choppy and a lot of people got sick but the staff were on the ball handing out sick bags and checking everyone was ok. Once we got to the reef the weather was beautiful... More

Well presented and organised, professional, safe and clean. The company runs a fast and modern vessel with excellent diving facilities, good decks and aircon salon with good catering, However, I witnessed with horror how a member of the staff touched a fish in two occasions. Diving is not a circus.

We had a great day out on the Silverswift. Everything was well-organised. Sean was our dive guide and he was fantastic! He was knowledgeable and safety-conscious, and we enjoyed our dives with him a lot!

Had an awesome day. Staff were great. Always there to assist if needed. Very upbeat and always smiling and laughing. They all do an amazing job with organizing the crowd of people. Morning tea lunch and afternoon tea was great. Very yummy. The boat is very comfortable with lots of tables and chairs. The boat was very full when we... More

I must admit, I expected a little more from the Great Barrier Reef than what I saw so I was a little disappointed. I think the price could be a little lower considering you are on a boat packed with around 100 people. Staff are ok, the little old guy who seems to be the boss was lovely and made... More

It was our ( my partner & me) first scuba dive... that too at the 'Great Barrier Reef'... there were mixed feelings for sure, anxiety, excitement.. all of it! SilverSwift ensured that we only had the best of the experiences and no nervous pangs absolutely! We booked early with them- 'online' ( recommended, you will get the best prices) considering...
