We stayed for 2 nights on reef encounter and did 9 dives in our three days. It was the best way to see the reef, by far, especially after seeing the crowds on the day boats. Our boat was very quiet, which made the experience very personal and the diving experience extremely hassle free.
All the crew were absolutely awesome and made us feel super welcome. The room was very comfortable and the food was great as well! As uncertified divers we were able to even experience a night dive, which was nerve wrecking, but Laura our instructor was amazing at making us feel comfortable in between the hunting fish, allowing us to get a whole new perspective on the ocean and the reef! As said, all the crew were amazing, but Laura and Kiri deserve a special mention as they were both absolutely fantastic at making us feel welcome and looked after.
Thanks to the whole team at reef encounter (including all the DMTs), we had an amazing time and would love to come back!!!!
