I did my dive licence when I was a child in Germany and I didn't dive ever since, but that was no problem for me to go on the dives as we got a short introduction from our instructor Simon. We saw a lot of fish, seacucumbers, Rays, Barracuda, turtles (we could also feed it) and also some Sharks. Simon... More

Super well organised trip catering for both divers and snorkelling and they offer introductory dives. Coffee and lunch is provided on the boat and included in the price. They visited three parts of the reef in one day and the location were quality reefs and not over crowded with other tours.

Amazing diving! We did 3 certified dives on Flynn Reef and were blown away. We have dove everywhere from Hawaii to Cozumel to Thailand and this dive was the best done sp far. The boat was a perfect size (very small compared to the other typical GBR boats out of Cairns). Also it was a very nice touch that the... More

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
