My 11 yr old daughter and I have just returned from 2 days and 1 night on the Reef Encounter. While the weather was a little rough (the luck of the weather gods) the crew couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. Being first time snorkelers, each time we went out we asked to have a crew member join us. Which was wonderful! They added to the richness of the experience, by taking us to places they thought cool stuff might be, pointing things out and dealing with the current and timings, so that we could just enjoy looking at the reef. P.S. The meals are hearty and huge :)
