Overnight Reefsleep Experience

There can be few more unique experiences offered in the World than the chance to sleep under the stars, 40 nautical miles from shore, on the Great Barrier Reef! 'Reefworld' is located on Hardy Reef one of the most spectacular stretches of the Great Barrier Reef off the Queensland coast.

They only take a few overnight guests, and you can bunk down on deck with them in a 'swag' (an Australian sleeping roll, a bit like a giant sleeping bag-tent, with a mesh cover, so that you can see the stars. Each swag sleeps one or two people and has a mattress, base and sleeping sheet, sleeping bag and pillow).

This day cruise experience includes a vessel transfer to and from the Reef, full use of the pontoon, overnight accommodation at Reefworld, snorkelling with all gear provided, semi-submersible cruise with commentary, underwater viewing chamber, two all you can eat buffet lunches, two morning and afternoon teas, a superb barbecue dinner, presentations by Reef Experts, free wetsuit usage and use of the sun deck for topping up your tan. Massage, guided snorkelling, heli-scenic flights, night diving and daytime intro and certified diving experiences are available at an additional cost.
