I wanted to see as much reef as i could in one day so this tour was perfect as the boat goes to 3 different sites. The snorkelling was amazing and I also tried an intro scuba dive. The crew were so much fun.

Thanks to the tour desk ladies who recommended silver swift, they were not wrong. Great visibility and beautiful corals. I am a certified diver and have travelled to many sites around the world and I couldn't have been more happy to finally see the Great Barrier Reef. JUST INCREDIBLE!

Silverswift was great, shame about the weather though. Even though it rained the underwater visibility was awesome, the coral and fish colours seemed briliant. Had my first scuba dive Brilliant I'm hooked

Wow so lucky to go out to the reef on such a perfect day with Silverswift out of Cairns with my family. Ocean was brilliant blue and calm, the crew fantastic the food great and the snorkelling fantastic. This boat goes to three locations in a day and each day its a different reef based on the weather conditions so you get to see the best of the best. Thank you Silverswift

Keen diver and I would live to recommend this company to anyone who wants great service and stunning reef sites. I went out on two days both from Cairns and Port Douglas and couldn't be more impressed.

I enjoyed my day on the reef and think going to a number of locations is a great idea, providing a good selection of dive sites. Very happy that this trip was recommended to us and I will do the same to our friends in Singapore that are travelling to OZ.

Silver Swift is definately the best boat to go on if you want to do some serious diving. I became a divemaster when I was younger, and had not been out to the reef for a long time. I wanted quality for my final trip out of Cairns and I certainly got that. They took us to see some high quality coral and an abundance of marine life. Thank you to the crew, you certainly made my day.

Silver Swift Dive and Snorkel was an incredible day. The day began with poor weather conditions... Luckily we were going out on a boat that picked their locations daily based on weather conditions, tides and visibility. The skipper Kev took us to 3 stunning protected outer barrier reef locations with 100% visibility. The crew were friendly in aiding the snorkellers and the dive team were experienced and knew the sites very well. Lunch was catered by the Sebel and was exquisite! The boat was very clean and featured hot water showers and spacious changerooms. Silver Swift is unique in the way that it has a specialised ride control system to ensure the smoothest ride possible which made everyone on board very comfortable. Great Job to the Silver Swift team - we will definitely be back!

Was told they were the best dive boat out of Cairns so decided to do my first ever intro dive with them and all i can say is i was a certified diver a week later. Couldn't fault the boat, crew, gear or food in anway, all were 5 star. If you are wanting to do diving whether a cert or intro these guys are the best, the locations and the marine life were all brilliant. They have the option of a few differnet reefs so you will get to see the very best the GBR has to offer. I've done a few different operators now and a still find Silverswift to be the premier company to go diving with out of Cairns. FOr a good day on the reef i can recommend them enough.
