    "Very well run"
    I am an Advanced Open Water certified diver and I can't express how amazing this company is. First off, they are extremely well organized. They will group you with divers with similar experience. They had small groups, only 4 people with one dive master on our dive. The pre AND post briefings were the best I've ever experience! I have quite a few dives under my belt and I learned a few new things just at the preparatory briefing. Very thorough and professional. The equipment is to of the line new equipment too. The dives were unbelievable! The coral is so rich and colorful, we just could not believe it. There were snorkelers on board and they kept the groups separated and even fed the groups at different times. They had a separate section on the boat for scuba divers. Just very well organized. You have to visit Cairns and you have to dive with Silverswift. You will not be sorry!

    "Rainy or sunny you can snorkel or scuber!"
    We enjoyed our adventure with Silverswift despite rain. The reef was chock full of colorful corals and many kinds of large and small fish, rays, turtles, a shark and more. The was food very good. They provided stinger (Lycra?) suits for light protection and gear for snorkeling/scubing. The guides were helpful and cheerful.

    "Absolutely Fantastic Scuba Diving on the Great Barrier Reef"
    Ty was our dive master for the day, and was one of the most organized and fun Dive master's i've had the pleasure of diving with. The pre-dive briefing on the way to the reef was on of the best I've experienced, and the corals we encountered were the best I have ever seen. The boat was very well organized, so that the divers and snorkelers were never stepping on each other. Just a great day overall. You can add a third dive to your standard two-dive package while you are out at the reef for an extra $15 (which we gladly did)!!!
