Reef Encounter is a holiday all in itself, and we believe it’s the best liveaboard trip out of Cairns.

Australia’s floating hotel, “Reef Encounter” offers luxury facilities of a land-based resort while cruising the pristine waters of the spectacular Great Barrier Reef making it one of the most unique holidays escapes in Australia.

Multi-share accommodation offers dormitory style cabins with three bunk beds to a room. All cabins have their own ensuite. You can choose from a variety of packages to experience the Great Barrier Reef – whether it be to enjoy the sunset and sleep on the reef, go snorkeling, become a certified diver with a learn to dive course or if you’re a qualified scuba diver, enjoy the amazing variety of coral and marine life in this world heritage marine habitat.

A fully air conditioned 35 metre catamaran hotel, designed for the utmost stability and comfort at sea, Reef Encounter boasts a large dining saloon, TV and lounge area and a huge sundeck. She has her very own outdoor hot tub and licensed bar onboard.

Reef Encounter has the latest in scuba equipment along with large easy access dive and snorkel platforms, with glass bottom boat tours available free of charge upon request.
