Itinerary:

Silverswift departs Cairns’ Marlin Marina at 8.30am to commence its 60/70-minute trip to the Great Barrier Reef. En route, enjoy a gourmet focaccia breakfast as detailed briefings are provided by the friendly, professional staff. You’ll arrive at your first reef destination at 9.50am and have just over an hour to explore this amazing natural paradise.

At 11.15am Silverswift heads to its second reef destination and on arrival snorkelers will be briefed on the best locations to view coral and marine life. An amazing smorgasbord lunch is available from 12.30pm and includes king prawns and fish, hot curries, garden and pasta salads and tropical fruits. Soups are added to the menu in winter, to warm you up.

Silverswift heads to its third reef location at 1.40pm, allowing you another half an hour to explore this diverse environment. Afternoon tea is served from 2.15pm and all passengers must return to the vessel by 2.45pm, for final head count and 3pm departure. Arrive back into Cairns at 4.30pm.

Diving:

Silverswift offers up to three (3) scuba dives per day: all dives are guided by professional dive guides and all equipment is included in the dive price. There is the option to try an introductory dive (no previous experience necessary) or book certified scuba diving.

INTRODUCTORY DIVES: No experience necessary. This is a great opportunity for those who want to try scuba diving for the first time. All equipment and tuition is included, with training provided on the way to the Great Barrier Reef. These scuba dives are shallow and guided, giving non-divers the chance to experience the underwater world.

CERTIFIED DIVING: You will be required to show you dive license and preferably your log book. All certified diving on Silverswift is guided and you can choose between 1, 2 and 3 dives, during your five hours at the Great Barrier Reef. Certified dives will last approximately 40-minutes each, with a maximum depth of 18m. Using the standard itinerary timings, the first dive is at 10am the second at 11.45am and the final dive at 1.45pm. All equipment is included in the certified diving price: dive medical paperwork will be completed on board.

Snorkeling:

This trip is suitable for adventure snorkelers, which basically means people that are comfortable swimming and snorkelling in open water. The coral gardens rise from the ocean floor to plateau just metres under the surface (sometimes breaking the surface at low tide) which makes ideal snorkelling conditions. All equipment is included in the ticket price, as is a 30-40 minute guided snorkelling tour with a trained marine interpreter. Access to the water is from a submerged platform and prescription masks are available on request (at no additional cost). Lycra suits are available for hire on board and are recommended for sun protection.
