Highly recommend Silverswift for a fantastic day out on the reef! We're locals and Silverswift & it's sister, Silversonic are our number 1 pick for affordable reef and dive trips. From start to finish the crew were fantastic. All crew members were really friendly & were really professional with the customers who were seasick. We did 3 certified dives with... More

My wife and I spent a day snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. The day lived up to our high expectations. Such a national treasure! The water was clear, the fish and sea life plentiful, and the coral beautiful. Half of the people on the boat were sick on the trip out to the reef, including myself. The trip was an... More

Great day, lots to see and do. Spend the trip out to the reef outside, the view is unreal. Equipment was first class, crew fantastic. Worth every cent. Great job.

You won't find a better group dive tour. Top notch all the way around. The boat is very comfortable, knowledgable staff, good food provided. Unfortunately the reef is not as colorful as we imagined and that is sad but the tour is wonderful. Highly recommend.

The diving coach is very patient and experienced. He even explained what to feel under the water and really let us be free as long as we keep a shot distance from him. The snorkeling is also full of fun. The second site has great reef which almost reach the water surface. A very memorable day. Slightly expensive when it... More

They are extremely professional and safety is number 1 priority without compromising your opportunity to enjoy the beauty and fun of the Outer Reef. I went in as a certified diver but without experience in the past two... More

Took a trip to Flynn Reef and did 3 dives. It was a very windy day so the boat trip out was horrible. The staff were kept busy with lots of sick people and did a great job of it. Once out to the reef it was much more pleasant. The dive guide (Marcos) was very great; attentive, knowledgeable, competent,... More

Very good day trip. Despite the fact that the boat caters for both divers and snorkellers, the latter (of whom we were part) do not feel in any way neglected. The sites are excellent for snorkelers, they have enough time in the water and a lot of attention is paid to them, no less than to divers. I'm underlining this... More

The boat was lovely, comfortable and clean with separate areas for snorkels and divers. The staff were really friendly and helpful with my nut allergy. We went to Flynn reef, it was pristine, we saw a reef shark, 3 turtles, loads of other smaller fish and giant clams. I did 2 dives then a snorkel after lunch all 3 sites... More

Would go again with this company. Was amazingly organised and gave a really good tour. I had never dived before and they gave really good instructions and directions. We went down as 4 guests and 1 guide and saw sharks, turtles, colourful fish, amazing coral and a few rays. I enjoyed it so much I booked a second dive on... More
