I am so glad I did a live on trip & that I chose Reef Encounter.
Where do I start? It's a great experience from the moment you step on the boat.
I had never done diving before. I ended up doing 6 dives including the amazing night dive.
Dive guides Lucy and Carl were fantastic and I felt totally safe and at ease each time.
Live aboard is great because you really get to experience the reef. The 6.30am dive was great.
There were only about 8 guests on the boat which was great :)
The bed is comfortable and perfect. The food is amazing. And the chef effortlessly catered for my gluten free dietary requirement.
Thank you to everyone in the crew for an amazing experience. I want to come back & get certified with you!
