Me and my fiancée went on this tour and had an amazing experience. We would recommend solve swift for the tour. The personnel were very attentive and professional. The food was of a good standard and the snorkelling was brilliant with the 3 different sites we visited and insight we received from them.

Went to the reef on the silverswift this week. Was an excellent day out on the water! All of the staff were great and extremely helpful! I dived with eve and Lisa as divemasters and they were both great guides and extremely lovely to deal with. It was nice having a smaller boat with not as many people on board,... More

The boat is not large, especially not compared to some of the really large ships docking off from the marina. However, they more than make up for it in service and friendliness. The staff are very professional, serve decent food for being on a small ship, and maintain their cool even as more than half the ship got seasick and... More

I had an amazing day with Silverswift. It's been a few years since my last dive so I wanted to do one of the intro dives to start out & thus wasn't an issue. Ty was in charge of this dive & was absolutely brilliant. After getting back some diving confidence I joined 2 of the certified dives, both with... More

My wife and I had an extra day in Cairns after doing a liveaboard boat so we booked the Silverswift. Marcos was very knowledgeable of diving and I felt very comfortable diving the reef at a comfortable pace. He showed us a ton of different fish, sharks, rays and other stuff on Flynn Reef. I'm a new-ish diver so he... More

We had a great day on this tour. They took us to 3 separate dive spots and had plenty of great staff to help make sure my 7 year old daughter and my husband who is not a confident swimmer enjoy the reef. We saw many incredible animals including 2 white tip reef sharks, a cuddle fish, several sea turtles,... More

I was on holiday in Sydney and decided to take a quick detour to Cairns to dive the Great Barrier Reef. I booked with Silverswift Dive & Snorkel for 3 dives - everything went without a hitch. The sihp left dock at 8:30 and by 10am, we were starting our first dive. The dive masters were great - very informative... More
