The wife and I spent our 10 year wedding anniversary on a trip to the South Pacific. We chose reef encounter for our plan to dive the great barrier reef. We chose the top deck option and it was well worth it. We spent three days and two nights on the Reef Encounter live-aoard, we dove 10 times and snorkled 3 times. On the night dive we were surrounded by a half-dozen Grey reef sharks and we will never forget that feeling. The reef, fish, turtles, rays, and sharks were absolutely amazing, Our guide Lance made us feel like VIPs all the way. The food, room, and service were fantastic on top deck. Our Captain went out of his way to ensure we saw every reef possible and had the most complete dive experience. When we go back to Cairns we will definately choose Reef Encounter again.
