3 Day Liveaboard Snorkel Tour – Stateroom

This ultimate 3 day Cairns liveaboard Snorkel Tour will have you snorkelling on the beautiful Outer Great Barrier Reef with Cairns premier Liveaboard Vessel “Reef Encounter!

Reef Encounter voyages up to 200 nautical miles off the east coast of Australia across four Outer Great Barrier Reef locations.

This means you get to experience a variety of snorkel sites and marine attractions during your trip.

We use years of marine experience to ensure that we take you to the best snorkelling and diving locations depending on the weather and current conditions, to ensure comfortable and fun water activities.

Stay in style Our Great Barrier Reef liveaboard snorkel vessel is fully air conditioned for maximum comfort. Reef Encounter boasts large lounge, dining, dive and sun deck areas. All of our spacious cabins are en-suite with ocean views and all gourmet meals are freshly prepared by your onboard Chef.

Time to snorkel! Reef Encounter has six water sessions a day so you can choose when you want to snorkel and when you want to relax or enjoy the other activities onboard.

Sunrise at the Reef One of the greatest attractions for choosing to sleep at the reef is the option to do a dawn snorkel. As in any eco system dusk and dawn are the busiest times of the day and many of the crew will tell you that it’s the best time to be in the water! Can you imagine a better way to begin your day than watching the sun come up over the ocean and going for a morning splash?

Experienced swimmer or snorkeler? Our crew will show you to the best patches of coral and can tell you where to find the marine marvels that call the reef their home. Want to find Nemo? No problem! Want to see for yourself that Giant Clams really exist and learn how these amazing creatures feed and breathe? Ask us how!

Never snorkelled before? Need some assistance in the water? Our friendly and professional team are always ready to jump in and assist everybody to have fun and enjoy the magic that the reef has to offer, ensuring that you are comfortable with your equipment and introduce you to some of our friendly fish! Buoyancy aids such as snorkelling vests, wetsuits and noodles maintain all the freedom of movement while comfortably allowing you to stay at the surface and observe the marine life beneath.

Have the snorkelling trip of a lifetime onboard this premier Cairns Liveaboard Reef Encounter!
