We did two diffident day trip diving board during our trip to Cairnes buy Silverswift was the (much) better off the two. The boat trip itself was very similar although Silverswift's provided lunch was better. The dive sites we went to (Flynn and Moore) were awesome. Each site had a unique experience to offer with plenty of wildlife to see... More

We did a day trip with Silverswift (and its sister ship Silversonic too), 3 certified dives / day, using our own gear. Amazing experience. Superb organization, fantastic crew and facilities, breathtaking dive sites. We have been diving all around the world and we were very pleased with everything. The corals are fantastic too. I am good at nitpicking but couldn't... More

Went on a day trip to Flynn and Milln reefs on the outer barrier reef. Both diving and snorkelling were well organised and professionally led. Both food and equipment were first class and crew members all very friendly and helpful. An enjoyable day out on a well-kept modern vessel.

Opted for a beginner dive as I did not have certification. Never on a dive in my life (55 yrs.). Instruction was concise and professional. I was surprised at how comfortable I felt in the water. While in the water, the instructor constantly hand signal asked each of us if we were OK. Once we were acclimated, we went to... More

We were a group of 9 with advance divers and inexperienced divers. For many of us it was our first time attempting to dive. The Silver Swift staff was friendly, informative and made us feel at-ease as first time divers. The staff divided the new divers into groups of 4 per an instructor. My friends and I were assigned to... More

A fantastic experience. Friendly and knowledgeable crew, a wealth of food and drink, comfy spots to sunbathe and, of course, a generous amount of time snorkeling and diving out at the Reef. For the price you pay I doubt you'll find a better day trip than this - absolutely outstanding.

We had a great day snorkelling at three different locations on the reef. My eldest son tried scuba and we felt comfortable that he was in good hands and well taken care of. We had no problem placing our 16 year old in the hands of the young man to take him on his first 2 dives( his name slips... More

Hello ShonaL Thank you for your review and it’s great to hear you enjoyed your day with Silverswift, despite the shaky start. We’re sorry to learn of your mix up.
