It's my first time to do scuba diving, so I was a little nervous. After I arrived the bottom of the sea, I forgot to bite my scuba snorkel tightly, then I drunk bitter salty sea water, and I was too nervous so I did the worst thing under the water, loose my scuba snorkel... Imagine how stupid I was... More

We enjoyed our trip out on the Silverswift catamaran. The morning tea and snacks were nice, and the lunch had a decent variety of food. I think my only complaint would be about the guided snorkel tour - would probably be much better if it was broken down into groups instead of allowing everyone to go on the tour at... More

Snorkelling or diving, the professional and amusing staff make it a joy. Away from the madding crowds - some beautiful reef - knowledgeable guides - good quality gear for both divers and snorkelers - really well done - highly recommended.

I snorkeled with Silverswift and I was not disappointed. We had about half the capacity of the vessel, and more people were doing scuba than snorkel I think. This made for a nice, intimate experience where you could easily lose yourself in the reef. Ty was our guide and was incredibly friendly and knowledgable about the area. Of course, every... More

The staff were amazing, friendly, and they knew what they were doing under the water. They created a feeling of a very safe environment and everything went smoothly. I am a certified diver and took the 3 dives. I highly suggest all 3 dives as they were all worth the price. The people who had not purchased all 3 dives... More

I read about Silverswift while planning my journey to Australia. The booking process was very easy. Staff was very friendly and professional. Due to rough sea, we were advised to take sea sickness pills and they even sold some on board (thanks!). The divemaster was professional. Why 4 stars: Reviewing my video footage, I saw that on every shot of... More

This is a very well run company. They know what they are doing and do it really well. Very professional, good equipment, good food, clean boat. And, of course the staff is excellent. They give you as much help as you need and leave as much freedom as you want. We never felt rushed or anything. Special thanks to Ty,... More

Best day. Very well organised. Staff on the boat couldn't be more friendly. 3 different dive sites. You are given a briefing at each site - where to snorkle etc. Morning / afternoon tea & lunch provided. Good food & plenty of it. Definitely worth the money. It was a rainy day in Cairns but out on the reef it... More

It is a very well organized tour operator. They go to the outer reefs and that's what I wanted but I definitely recommend people to get certified before the trip because this crew is very by the book - they won't let you go by yourself even if you are very good with no certification.
