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.

Ask for Instructor Kevin

Excellent Open Water course. Instructor Kevin was a sensational teacher. Clear, concise, humorous and engaging. Patient and experienced, made for a very successful and fast learning experience, as well as an unforgettable one. Ask for him if you can!

The Great Barrier Reef is still amazing!

My partner and I booked the 4 day 3 night live aboard hoping to see Minke whales in late June 2022. Unfortunately we weren't able to go up to Ribbon Reefs as the wind and swell were too rough that was a little disappointing at first.Instead we went to Flynn and Milln reefs about 35miles east of Cairns and the dive spots were great! I was so pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I felt on the boat and the food was amazing.The crew worked their absolute backsides off to make sure we had everything we needed. Big shoutout to Jordan, Pedro, Leo, Caro, Martin and Tim. There was 24 divers on the boat and they got to know each of us, kept the boat clean and offered plenty of help with diving of course.Thanks guys for making my partner and my first live aboard experience such a great one! I would definetely go on another live aboard with this company again.

Amazing dive course and liveaboards

We did two liveaboard trips with ProDive Cairns, almost back to back, including doing my Open Water Dive Course. Both trips were well organised, the gear was all great, the staff were fun and of course all the dive sites were incredible. Our second trip was the Minke Whale trip and we were lucky enough to spend about 7 hours with the whales, pretty much getting in and out of the water as much as we wanted. For the open water course my instructor, Michael, was super patient and thorough got me from nervous in the swimming pool to even going on to do the Adventure course in the space of 5 days. Even the food was great on both trips. Would highly recommend ProDive Cairns to anyone who wants to see the reef or learn to dive.
