Silverswift Dive and snorkel from Cairns
Departing daily from Cairns, Silverswift is a luxury 29-metre catamaran designed with everything you need to experience an underwater world of colourful marine life in safety and comfort. This trip visits three different sites on The Outer Barrier Reef, allowing certified divers to experience up to 3 dives in a day. Introductory diving is also available onboard for those interested in trying a dive for the very first time.
Adventurous snorkellers can explore spectacular coral formations and underwater gardens awash with vibrantly coloured marine creatures.
Locations vary with the conditions, however, each site is chosen for visual impact, ecological diversity, and the challenge of discovery. Onboard, your crew will encourage you to relax and enjoy the comfort of Silverswift with its bar facilities, fresh water showers, air conditioning and a delicious lunch for hungry adventurers.
Morning and afternoon tea is provided and the spacious deck areas are ideal for sharing a cold drink and tales of your adventure.
Please Note: some medical conditions may prevent you diving and you will be required to complete a waiver and medical statement prior to the trip. If you have recently/continue to suffer from an illness or condition that may affect your dive fitness, or are currently taking any prescription medication, you will need to consult a doctor for a 'fit to dive' medical certificate.
