Everything about the trip was exceptional, particularly the location as there are no other boats around at all making it feel that extra bit special. The staff were friendly and attentive at all times. This trip caters to both intro and open water divers or even just snorkelers and none are to be disappointed. The food was great and the... More

Superb trip to the reef, great staff with a lot of knowledge about the reef and its inhabitats. Snorkeled at three different places and saw the most beautiful underwater worlds. Befofe each time you get a briefing about the place with tips about good places to snorkel. Keep an eye at the boat as they will point out where a... More

We booked the 1 day excursion and intro dive on Silverswift from Cairns. The trip was a little more expensive than others and we only ended up booking because they had availability when the cheaper troops where full but I'm glad that we did. Pros Great staff. We'd read reviews on other trips that the staff weren't interested and spent... More

The crew is very friendly, they tell u and brief you about everything. 3 different stops, so different opportunities to see the cutest fishes in the ocean. Enough just to snorkle but diving is nice and easy also, as you see the surface all the time!! Had a great... More

This is a bigger boat. There were supposedly 82 on our trip. However it did not feel crowded at all, as I had been afraid of when booking the trip. The three reefs that we were taken to were the best of all of the ones were saw on our entire trip. We saw numerous sharks, clams, huge fish, and... More
