A group of 7 people went out with Silverswift and we had a fantastic time! The staff were all super friendly and laidback. The snorkelling experience was amazing, we saw so many amazing fish, turtles and coral. The morning & afternoon tea and lunch was great - plenty of options and serving was timed well. They had an underwater photographer taking photos that were available to purchase. The boat was amazing and had outside and inside options. Highly recommended this experience!

Would highly recommend diving with silverswift! My partner and I went out yesterday and did three dives out on different areas of the reef which we absolutely loved. I am certified but hadn't dived for a few years, my instructor Ty was really great, he gave us a good debrief before the dives and ran through some skills with me. He was very patient and checked on me frequently which made me feel really comfortable. My partner had never dived before and his instructors Chi and Kenji were extremely helpful, they taught him the basics and kept an eye on him in the water while also providing some freedom to explore. All of our instructors pointed out the beautiful marine life below such as reef sharks, cuttlefish, stingrays and turtles!! The lunch and snacks provided were really tasty and filling and all of the staff were extremely helpful, friendly and passionate about their work and making sure we had a great day. Thank you :)

I came to Cairns and choose this boat to go and meet the great barrier. Just 20 hours before the boat was supposed to leave I had a call from them saying that they were canceling the trip because they didn’t had enough people to go and told me to ask for the cancellation on TripAdvisor. When I did they said they wouldn’t give a me refund because I canceled with less then 24 hours for the ride. So far it all seems to be really dodgy for me.

Very disappointed. Silverswift called us less than 24h to cancel our trip because was just 6people booked for the day. We paid 500$ to go and they said they can’t refund it because we booked from TripAdvisor. Don’t trust this company! Don’t go with silverswift
