Visit once, and Reef Encounter will live in your heart forever.

Have you ever had a job that you just loved? Where you woke up every day excited about what you’re going to do, who you’re going to meet or what you’re going to see?

Most boat crews get itchy feet and are destined to cross the next ocean and ride the next wave – so what makes us different? Quite simply, it’s that our crew come to stay! And because we love what we do – we want you to, too!

Our outstanding Crew – The Reef Encounter Team is the best in the business,
winning personal awards for customer service in the tourist industry year after year


Our crew are dedicated to going that extra mile to ensure your holiday on the Great Barrier Reef is everything you want it to be. We pride ourselves on the number of friendly faces from returning passengers, we see, and from our great word of mouth reputation.
