The "Ultimate" Barrier Reef Experience.

Jump to last reply

I saw a story on local TV a few weeks ago about a pontoon on the Reef that accommodates people for an overnight stay.

It looked absolutely fantastic as from 2.30pm, when all the daytrippers leave until mid morning the next day, you share the area with only a handful of other people.

I have come across the web site for this operation and am now even further impressed to find that they charge under $500 per person inclusive of 4 meals and drinks with and before dinner, a guided snorkelling tour or dive and transport to and from the pontoon. When you factor in that most day trips are over $200 and any type of reasonable accommodation on the mainland near the GBR is never cheap, this seems like quite a good deal.

I would be interested to hear anyones thoughts who has actually done this or have even just been on a daytrip to this part of the reef.
