Il Reef Encounter offre una base eccellente per i visitatori di Cairns per sperimentare, se hanno una notte o una settimana di tempo, le meraviglie della Grande Barriera Corallina.
La nave è interamente climatizzata con cabine moderne, spaziose e luminose, tutte dotate di bagno privato. La sala da pranzo è grande e fresca e la piscina termale riscaldata a bordo è perfetta per rilassarsi dopo un’immersione notturna o per guardare il tramonto con un bicchiere di champagne. E’ possibile praticare immersioni e snorkeling. Grande abbastanza per fornire tutti i comfort delle navi da crociera di stazza superiore, è abbastanza piccola per consentire l’accesso ai luoghi spettacolari della barriera inaccessibile ad altre imbarcazioni.
Disponibile per tour privati e per una vacanza unica.
