Cairns only sleep on-board a pontoon on the Great Barrier Reef! Experience a totally unique overnight stay on the reef without the risk of getting seasick...how perfect.  Your stay is at the Moore Reef platform/pontoon which is located 26 nautical miles off the coast of Cairns on the Great Barrier Reef.  Day trips to the platform operate 7 days a week, but for a lucky few, you can book to stay and "camp" on the platform. One of the very few companies who allow guest to sleep under the stars.  An intimate, personalised experience catering to no more than 18 overnight guests. 

Enjoy 2 full days on the Outer Barrier Reef with all the exciting "day trip" inclusions. However, from 3.30pm on day one until 11am the next day, your small group will experience the reef exclusively to yourselves. You have the freedom to choose from purely relaxing on the pontoon or extend your snorkelling time in the water. During the late afternoon you will feel completely spoilt when eating your evening dinner and watching the glorious sunset with a select few people. As darkness decends the stars sparkles and all night you can gaze upon them from your swag tent. Morning welcomes a glorious sunrise over the Great Barrier Reef with a sumptuous breakfast served. Before the day visitors arrive, you can join your reef hosts for a private and exclusive snorkel tour, as well as a glass bottom boat tour.
