Top Tips

Set sail for the best of the Great Barrier Reef on this tour from Cairns! This wonderful cruise package includes a return, air-conditioned luxury catamaran cruise that departs daily from Cairns then heads out for a day of marine adventure activities on the stunning Great Barrier Reef. Once the tour operator's hand-picked section of the reef (one of the most scenic in the region) is reached, you'll be able to enjoy a multitude of activities including as much snorkelling as your heart desires.

While on the water you can also embark on a guided snorkel tour with a qualified reef guide who will take you to explore the amazing coral formations and underwater gardens that are filled with vibrant aquatic life.

This cruise will visit a number of impressive sites that are perfect for snorkelling on the surface and diving into the depths with a certified scuba dive. The reefs on the agenda include Pellowe, Flynn, Milln and/or Thetford Reefs, each bursting with diverse beauty that is set to amaze. In addition to the included snorkelling guests have the option of purchasing a certified scuba dive expedition or you can learn to dive with their introductory scuba dive.

If you require a break from the aquatic adventures, on board the vessel you will be able to enjoy a delicious hot and cold buffet lunch to recharge your energy and satisfy your palate, soak up some sunshine on the spacious sun deck areas, enjoy hot freshwater showers and a licensed bar for drinks. Hotel transfers aren't included in this package however they can be added as an extra. Travel in comfort and style while enjoying one of the Wonders of the Natural World.

The trip was incredible. We had a lot of fun doing the snorkelling over 3 reefs. The crews on board were extremely friendly and attentive. You’ll be guided even though you’re a first timer to do snorkelling. You’ll never regret to go on this trip, good photos and good fun!
Visited 3 reefs, had morning and afternoon tea on board as well buffet lunch. Everything was great.

Fantastic day out with amazing snorkel sites, I'd go again!

The day started with a warning that the water was going to be a bit rough, all part of the unexpected wonders of this world I suppose. We sat upstairs, outside, on our way to the reef and received a splash of sea spray along the way, I was drenched, lucky it was a hot day! The 3 reef stops were amazing, words cannot describe!!! The 1st and 3rd stops were the best for snorkelling, stop 2 was a bit deeper but still breath taking!  We took advantage of the free to hire stinger suits whilst we snorkelled, good thing too because we did recounter some and the food for lunch was great.  The crew were knowledgeable and they also have a photographer who can take pics of you under water. It was a fantastic day out and I'm definitely recommending Silverswift to my friends and family!

The tour company was great

The tour company was great. Seamless check in at the ferry terminal. Unfortunately, the weather was not our friend and the boast was extremely rocky. People dropping like flies being sick. Staff were amazing at helping everyone. Snacks and coffee were good. Each of the three snorkel spots was amazing! Lunch was pretty good. Good variety. All the staff were friendly and informative.

Great vessel and pontoon

Great vessel and pontoon. The Submarine is great for people who afraid to go into the water.

Take a change of clothes with you as it is much more comfortable on the return journey with dry clothes. Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen as the Tropical North Queensland sun can be extremely strong.
