Stay on Australia's Best liveaboard here is what our guests say “INCREDIBLE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile
I had the most amazing time on the Reef Encounter. I would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to truly experience the Reef. This was my first dive experience after getting my open water certification and I don't think I could have picked a better way to do my first dives. The snorkeling was also incredible--you don't have to be a diver to have an amazing time on the Reef Encounter. I stayed one night on board and was wishing I could have stayed longer. The staff were very welcoming, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Stayed February 2016, travelled solo

“A must do experience on the reef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Reef Encounter was the best dive trip I have been on. Apart from the reef being incredible and vibrant, the marine life abundant and the diving just excellent, the RE crew and staff were incredible.

During our few days, nothing was too much trouble, the meals were exceptional. The breakfast buffet had plenty to choose from to get your day started and you never went hungry at any meal.

The rooms, common areas and vessel in general was in good condition that just made the down time easy and relaxing. I was worried about what to do when not diving when I booked it, but really, that time zipped by in no time in comfort on the lounge chairs - which are so comfy you don't want to get up out of them.

Whilst the return trip was also in comfort, it was really the only part we regretted as we could have stayed so much longer.

    Stayed June 2015, travelled as a couple

Don’t just visit the Great Barrier Reef for a few hours – sleep on it!

 

Reef Encounter, Australia’s only floating luxury boutique hotel, is situated on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Cairns and offers guests a unique opportunity to enjoy the ultimate reef experience.

Reef Encounter, a 35 metre luxury catamaran, offers all the luxury facilities of a reef resort while floating on the pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef – making it one of the most unique holiday escapes in Australia. 

Reef Encounter has a large easy access water platform that allows hassle free scuba diving and snorkeling, directly off the side of the boat in perhaps one of the most spectacular aquatic environments in the world. The vessel also features comfortable staterooms and deluxe Top Deck Club rooms, all with double or twin beds and private bathrooms.

Staying overnight on the reef is truly an experience that just has to be made. The spectacular sunrises and sunsets that rise and fall over the calm, azure waters simply have to be seen to be believed. The abundance of brightly shining stars just adds to the perfect natural setting.

Transfers to Reef Encounter are available daily via a minute fast catamaran boat ride from Cairns or a stunning helicopter trip over the Great Barrier Reef – a service that no other vessel can provide!

Hello! I just wanted to say is that the crew onboard my trip were absolutely amazing. I have never met a group so dedicated to their job and to the people onboard the boat. Their passion for the ocean made me excited about the ocean as well. I always felt safe with Nigel at the helm; I don't think there's anyone I'd trust more to navigate us away from a storm, and he did it all with an awesome attitude. I couldn't have asked for a more supportive person than Lucy to take me on my first scuba dive ever. And Scotty never left my side during my first night dive, which put my worries at ease. The chefs went above and beyond to make sure that as a vegetarian I was well taken care of, and every member of the crew was so kind I felt I had made a new set of friends after just 2 nights on board. Best, Joanna
