Stateroom Twin Share

Reef Encounter also boasts unlimited hot showers! Unlike most charter boats Reef Encounter makes it’s own fresh water, meaning you are not limited to one short shower per day. Twin share rooms or double rooms are at no additional cost.  To choose your accommodation please type in our notes section double bed or twin beds and we will organise that for you

The twin share room is a great choice if you are travelling with a friend or if you are travelling alone and you are happy to share a room with another traveller of the same gender. If you wish to have some privacy, you will need to select a ‘Sole Occupancy’ cabin upon booking meaning that you will not share a room with another guest.
