Booked with this company because of the size of the boat and the three dive locations. Ty was a great combination of professionalism and personality as were the other members of the crew. The speed of the boat meant we were able to spend more time in the water. This was our first trip to the Great Barrier Reef and... More

We went on the dive boat they offer taster dives which are worth trying if you haven't dived before. The snorkelling was fantastic if you don't dive. There are snorkelling safaris are good to do one of the team show various creatures from the reef to you which you are able to touch. They cater for all swimming abilities. Great... More

We did 3 dives at 3 different spots along Flynns Reef with Ty on Silverswift who is an absolute champion instructor. We saw lots of turtles, fish, sharks and swam through some beautiful coral formations which really made the dives amazing for me. Lunch is good too and the boat is comfortable. Yes it's expensive but so is everything in... More

I've wanted to go to the Great Barrier Reef my entire life and was not disappointed with these guys. Staff was incredible - super funny, helpful and kept us safe. They go to three different locations on the reef - each unique in terms of reef structure and marine life. Saw turtles, reef sharks, and heaps of fish. They provide... More

Just got back from a trip with Silverswift and would thoroughly recommend. We chose Silverswift as they offer dive sites further towards the edge of the reef, so there's fewer boats in the area (we only saw one other boat there) and the coral is in better condition than the coral further in the reef. You stop off at 3... More

I really do not care for the water, but you can't go to the Great Barrier Reef and not experience this spectacular opportunity. The tour took us to 3 different dive sites and the crew was very efficient at dealing with both divers and snorkelers. The first reef had a very rough current and even though I'm a good swimmer,...

It was an amazing experience! We came to cairns as divers with great expectations of the reef and had dived in another reef spot with another company and were disappointed, but this was a very certified diving oriented tour and they took us to greaaat spots in Flynn reef! It exceeded our expectations! We got to see sharks, turtles, sting... More

Well organised and structured tour brought us to 3 Reefs in a day. Small groups (9 of us) have been arranged to seated area with experienced staff approaching with personal friendliness (Desmond Suen) and detailed explanation. I have joined cruise at Cairns before and after and none can compare for good value. Very helpful staff and even picked up the... More
