WHAT TO EXPECT

Staying overnight on the Great Barrier Reef is a unique experience for both the snorkeler or the diver, one that you absolutely won't forget. The night-time marine life gives the adventurous snorkeler or diver a completely new perspective on the reef. Start your day right with an early morning dive amongst the most beautiful reef that the world has to offer. You'll awake to the sounds of waves lapping up against the boat and watch the breathtaking sights of the sun rising and setting along the horizon from the spacious decks of the Kangaroo Explorer.

Port and Reef fee of $20.00 per person per day on the reef will be collected onboard.
