We had been on a day tour in the Whitsundays already that we thoroughly enjoyed, so we were reluctant to pay for another. I'm really glad we did. The reef we were taken to was amazing. There were three stops, and such a large quantity and variety of fish at each. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the food... More

As first time of scuba diving, I was extremely nervous.In the very beginning I had difficulties in breathing and adjust the water pressure upon my ears. I was so panic and wanna give up. Ms.Kyoko was patient to... More

If you are a experienced or rookie diver or snorkeler this is the the best choice for experiecing the outer barrier reef. The boat is large, modern, clean and fast so it cuts through the waves and gets you to the outer reef quickler than the other boats. I am used to small dive groups on small baots but was... More

In my opinion the best Great Barrier Reef tour leaving from Cairns. 3 beautiful locations for diving or snorkelling. Clean and spacious vessel with friendly and helpful crew. Complementary snorkel briefings advised on the best places to see the marine life and the guided snorkel tour was informative and fun.

I went on my first reef experience with Silverswift and absolutely loved it! I did 3 dives on three different sites. I saw turtles on each of the dives, reef sharks, a stingray and lots of beautiful fish and of course an amazing reef! The Silverswift crew was very helpful and just lovely people! You can really tell that they... More
