Silverswift Snorkelling Reef Trip
From $270pp

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.

Expect to experience exquisite underwater coral and reef formations, home to thousands of tropical fish and marine life. In total you’ll get 5 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 is available as a fantastic optional extra but isn’t a booking essential. 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. If you love the look of this tour and would like to try add an Introductory or Certified scuba dive then look no further than their 1 Day Great Barrier Tour with Scuba Dive. 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.
