My husband and I just spent 5 nights aboard the Reef Encounter and it was too brief. We are snorkelers and found the reefs were spectacular. The crew was very attentive (special thanks to Christian) and fun loving. The food was not only delicious but presented with flair (thank you Ryan) . Captain Nigel even made the temporary interruption of our trip due to Cyclone Dylan a fun adventure. We always felt safe and well cared for. Our only regret was having to leave after 5 days. Highly recommend this trip.
