Had a really great time with these guys. Nice, big boat with great dive equipment. Dive master was excellent and took us through tons of great swim-throughs, especially at the second dive site. Highlight was emerging from one of the swim-throughs to see a giant barracuda--super cool. Good lunch break mid-day and a very organized group. Impressed to have been... More

As a native Englishman two things really got me during my day on the Reef. The first was the Reef itself, the second was how bloody sheltered my upbringing was. Never in my life have I seen a fish any other shade than grey! So it was highly important that we chose the right tour company for my first, and... More

We had to be on the pier around 0800AM - get your ticket at the office, even when you forget your invoice they have your name in the computer (we had stress because we forgot ours) Large and professional crew, nice lunch and great dive master. He had a lot of fun in what he does and that was noticeable... More

This was a great company to go on a first dive with! Even with me being a little uneasy at the beginning they helped me in and did everything they could to make me comfortable on the dive.

Very good boat and knowledgable staff. Spacious boat and not very crowded unlike the others. Takes you to the Agincourt reef and we found the instructor Satoshi to be very knowledgable and helpful. The reef itself is spectacular and we felt very safe at all times. All snorkelling gear was provided including prescription lens masks.

Silverswift will bring you to nice diving sites at the outer reef for a fair price. They have good service on their ship and serve breakfast, lunch, as well as coffee all day. Their equipment is good and they seem to be well organized despite the fact that there are many people diving at the same time. The dive master... More

I've done a lot of diving around Australia, Vanuatu, and the Philippines and I have to say the professionalism of this mob is some of the best I've seen. We had a great day seeing turtles, sharks, barracuda, clown fish and on and on. Simon was an excellent dive master, and did a great job in every way; sharing his... More

Food on board was good, varied and included vegetarian, drinks available through out trip. Worth noting if you are Australian take photo ID and Address ID and get approx a 30% discount... More

Hi John, Great to have you on board mate, thank you for taking the time to leave a great review for us. Just to clarify the discount noted, this only applies to frequent local travellers (Local being defined as someone who lives in the Cairns region) with local ID required. Hope we see you again soon!

Sights were only at maximum a 100mtrs between each other and sometimes did not make alot of sense to get dry n then get wet again, but is... More

WOW!!! This was our third and unfortunately last trip to the reef in a week and we were not disappointed. First trip to Flynn Reef (out of Cairns) and was nice to see somethings we hadn't seen at Agincourt reef (from Port Douglas). Highly recommend this option (swim off the boat) as opposed to the Pontoons as you see more... More
