Departing daily from Cairns, Silverswift is ready to whisk you away for a day of fun and adventure on the Great Barrier Reef. Enjoy your precious time at the Great Barrier Reef in superb style and comfort, they’re all about less people, more reef destinations, and a crew who knows the reef like the locals they are.

You’ll explore spectacular coral formations and underwater gardens awash with vibrantly coloured marine creatures as you visit three different outer reef sites at Flynn, Pellowe, Milln and/or Thetford Reefs. Locations vary with the day’s conditions and each site is chosen for visual impact, ecological diversity and the challenge of discovery

Onboard, their friendly crew will encourage you to relax and enjoy Silverswift’s comforts and in between water activities there’s a delicious lunch for hungry adventurers. The spacious deck areas are great to bask in some sunshine or share a refreshing drink from the licenced bar and tales of your adventures.


Silverswift has roaming permits and remote sites, you’ll be able to snorkel three uniquely different and ecologically diverse reef sites, each chosen to suit the day’s conditions. As coral relies on sunlight for growth, some of the best snorkelling is in the shallow areas around the reef top.

With a guided snorkel tour included, snorkel briefs at each reef site and lifeguard snorkel officers supervising, you’ll be able to explore the underwater delights in complete safety.
If you haven’t snorkelled before, that’s ok! Their crew will be on hand to give you instruction but they do recommend you have the ability to swim and fairly good fitness as snorkelling can be a strenuous activity. Flotation devices and buoyancy vests are available on board if needed. Prescription masks are also available at no extra cost.

It is a wonderful, exciting and indeed memorable experience to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

Introductory Divers

So you’d like to take the plunge! With an Introductory Dive (or sometimes known as a “Discover Dive” or “Resort Dive”), no previous experience is necessary and you’ll be able to experience the excitement of scuba diving whilst under very close supervision of an instructor.

Their onboard and highly skilled dive instructors will take you step by step through the whole experience, from the dive briefing lecture, the equipment and the dive, to ensure all facets of your dive are comfortable and most of all enjoyable.

Once at the Reef, it’s out to the dive deck and ready to gear up! Your instructor will make sure you’re comfortable with the basic skills again and you’re ready for your underwater adventure!

The instructor is by your side the whole time and you can even link arms if you feel the need. Your dive experience will generally last around 30 minutes underwater, and if you’re hooked by the end of, you’ve got the option to try a second introductory dive at another site to experience a whole new reef environment!

Certified Divers

As a certified diver, you can enjoy up to three spectacular dives, experiencing three different Great Barrier Reef environments when you travel with the Silver Series for your dive adventure. With the most extensive range of dive sites to visit daily, divers of all levels from novice to experienced will be excited by the range of experiences their magnificent sites present including drift and wall dives, bommie and pinnacle, coral gardens and swim throughs.

Their professional instructors accompany all dives at no extra charge, ensuring maximum safety and enjoyment. They have intimate local knowledge of the reef systems you will visit and are passionate about sharing this! Certified dives last approximately 40 minutes or more.
