Witness yourself how daybreak above the waves couldn’t be more different to what’s taking place beneath the surface…

Rise on Reef Encounter and make moments turn into lifelong memories as you marvel at the dawn sky. As peaceful first light breaks above the sparkling Pacific Ocean, it’s a perfect opportunity for relaxing and capturing those treasured holiday photographs.

As the sun rises over the Coral Sea, it’s rush hour for the creatures of the Great Barrier Reef…

Did you know that turtles rise to the surface every morning to take their first, long gulps of air after a night asleep underwater?

Go for an early morning snorkel or scuba dive and see life on the reef in a whole new light! Enjoy diving and snorkelling in pristine coral lagoons, viewing spectacular drop-offs and marvelling at the largest concentration of fish, marine mammals and underwater life than anywhere else on the planet!
You will be excited to see the daybreak at the Great Barrier Reef
