Snorkeling:

Reef Encounter has a large semi-submerged platform located on the back deck of the boat. This makes it very easy to get in and out of the water. A crew member is always on hand to help you in and out of the water. Snorkel over beautiful coral gardens in only 2 meters of water. Spot giant clams, anemonefish, schooling trevally and much more! Life jackets and pool noodles are also available on the day, just ask the crew.

Certified Scuba Diving:

Like all the liveaboard dive boats in Cairns, on Reef Encounter all scuba dives are unguided. The idea of this is to give you the freedom to buddy up and explore the reefs in your own buddy pairs.

Full dive gear is provided i.e. snorkel, fins, mask, BCD, regulator, dive computer, tanks, and weights are included.

The dive consists of 10-minute instruction on the boat with the instructor and full dive gear. Once completed you enter the water and slowly descend to between 8 and 12 meters under the boat.
