1 Day Great Barrier Reef Diving Trip With Silverswift
From $338pp

Firstly, this vessel is the fastest boat in Cairns…

In short, this means you get more time to explore three different exclusive dive and snorkel sites located on the Outer Barrier Reef. You’ll zoom past the other boats and be the first to reach the reef. Expect to experience exquisite underwater coral and reef formations, home to thousands of tropical fish and marine life. In total, you’ll get five hours of actual reef time – more than the rest.
You can make your day extra special by adding in an Introductory or certified scuba dive. This can be selected below. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to do this trip as a snorkeler then check out their snorkel day tour.

This super fast catamaran is also equipped with onboard computer stabilisers to provide a smooth passage to the Outer Reef. If sea sickness features on your list of worries, then this could be perfect for you. Healthy and delicious eats featuring morning tea and fresh focaccias and muffins, followed by a five star quality hot and cold tropical buffet and cheese and crackers platter for the way home (for those still feeling peckish).

Top of the range snorkel and diving equipment along with exceptional guides and marine experts make for one hell of a reef experience. The Great Barrier Reef is a must do, once in a lifetime kind of experience. We recommend you do it the best way possible so look no further than Silverswift.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I need help with my tour booking?

If you need help with an existing booking please email us at [email protected], if your enquiry is urgent please follow up your email with a quick call on +61 2 5633 1149 so we can help you.

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely, we understand that paying off a big trip in one go isn’t always that easy. We offer flexible payment plans to suit all types of travellers with zero interest or fee’s (minimum $100AUD deposit required).

Do I need travel insurance?

We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travelers take out travel insurance. If you already have Travel Insurance please understand that it is your responsibility to ensure that your Travel Insurance covers you for all of the adventure style travel you have booked with us.

World Nomads travel insurance policies offer coverage for more than 150 activities. Get a quote, make a claim, or buy or extend your policy while on the road.

Can I book a package but travel in the reverse direction?

Absolutely, just let us know your preferred start and finish location and we’ll make it work.

What is the best way to travel Australia?

There is definitely no wrong way. We recommend either taking a WHIMIT or Hop on Hop off bus pass such as Greyhound or renting a campervan with some mates and hitting the open road. If you feel like getting pretty adventurous and want to get amongst the true Australian terrain, a 4WD may be better suited for you. Enquire now and we can help you find the most suitable transport option.

What if something comes up and I can't make my tour?

We get it. Life is all about the unexpected, especially when you are travelling. If you are unable to make your pre-arranged tour you will need to reach out to our support email so we can give you a helping hand. In all cases we strongly recommend having a valid travel insurance policy which covers you for unexpected cancellations.

Can I add additional tours or make changes to this package?
