Of the three reef trips I've taken, this is by far the best. Great crew. Great reefs. Great food. Not too overcrowded.

Anthony had an excellent fish brief helping us after we spotted different specifies to identify them. Isao our dive guide gave a thorough brief and made sure to top us off on oxygen so we could stay down under longer :)

Excellent experience. Finally off my bucket list! Staff worked hard and were polite and friendly. Enjoyed the guided snorkelling tour. Equipment was good and even provided prescription googles. Didn't see any sharks!

Very few that offer 3 dives in a day on a day trip. Quick moving, not great if your not confident or want extra support. Unfortunately we ended up in a unexpected drift dive and the instructor panicked and made us swim against the current. This kind of took away the fun and focus on the reef/ fish and more of swimming hard! Good trip
If your confident but would t recommend to new divers. Group sizes were very big. 8 in one dive group. Our guide also had little knowledge on the fish when I asked question.

One of the best days in our 6-week tour of Australia and New Zealand!

Silverswift's boat is large enough to travel smoothly on the water, but small enough to have a more personal feel to it. Morning tea was served as we arrived on the boat. A guide helped to fit us with the equipment we'd need to snorkel and gave us basic info that we needed.

During the 3 snorkeling times, the crew was attentive to our positions in the water, allowing everyone to swim as they wished, but keeping everyone from travelling to far away for their own safety. During the third snorkeling time, a crew member lead a tour in the water, showing us coral and water creatures... a great experience. I'm not a great swimmer, but because of his leadership, I was comfortable going a distance from the boat with his group.

The variety of food at lunch was great. It was self-serve, so we could eat whatever we wanted. Tea/coffee and treats were served throughout the afternoon for those who didn't want to snorkel all 3 times, or for the snorkelers when we finished.

Fantastic day on the reef with a wonderful, caring crew & beautiful food. The crew were warm, friendly & safety conscious and remained professional but funny at all times. This is a well oiled machine and the crew know exactly what the objectives are and work tirelessly to ensure that all guests have a great time. We were supported, mentored, entertained, lead and fed in an easy and effortless way. Captain Todd was great, and explained decisions and timing so those of us who were sea sick were looked after with minimum fuss. We highly recommend this trip, and vegetarians will be very happy with the lunch, which is the best I have ever had a on a tour in any country.

I enjoyed snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. The crew was organized and they reviewed safety measures with us. Lunch was good too.

The only thing was the day we went out it was really choppy. The ride was about and hour and 20 minutes from the dock. I'm so glad I started taking anti-nausea meds the night before. If you get motion sickness, take something before attending. Once in the water, it wasn't bad. I sure hope they refunded the money for the lady who barfed and slept the entire time. The staff checked on her, offered her anti nausea meds, but she was miserable.

Got some great pictures. Didn't see a shark. Hopefully next time!
