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.

Incredible experience

Could not recommend this enough! The whole trip was such an incredible experience. Between the whole live on the boat situation and the reef with all the corals and the wild life, it was well worth it. Flo, the PADI instructor, was so knowledgable, passionate and relatable, it made me fall in love with diving.

One of the most beautilful and exciting courses we’ve ever undergone.

Just got back from the Pro Dive Open Water Scuba Dive liveaboard trip with my girlfriend at Great Barrier Reef, and it was no less than one of the best experiences we’ve ever had. Thanks to Floriane Guyot, our dive instructor, we can now call ourself Certified Open Water Scuba Divers. Flo managed to keep us safe and informed troughout the whole course - she is both very professionel, very kind and does a very good job as a teacher.
