Sunlover Reef Cruises - Sunlover by Starlight

There isn't a more Australian experience than sleeping outside in a swag, under a billion stars, while floating on a pontoon on the Great Barrier Reef.

Sunlover Reef Cruises is now offering guests Sunlover by Starlight, a once in a lifetime overnight reef stay, at Moore Reef Pontoon located on the Great Barrier Reef, just 26 nautical miles off the coast of Cairns. Moore Reef is an awe-inspiring underwater spectacle, teaming with brilliantly coloured corals and more than 10,000 fish and marine species.

This is the destination for our day guests and for a lucky few, the chance to continue on their day, camping with no more than 18 guests on a stable 45m long and 12m wide pontoon. An intimate, personalised experience with our crew hosts, it's just the wonders of the night sky as you feel at home in the heart of the ocean, hearing the sounds of temperate waters lapping, sea birds and nocturnal creatures coming to life, all the while basking in the sea air and warmth of Tropical North Queensland.

Guests will enjoy two full days on the reef, back to back together with all the exciting inclusions and dive options available. From 3.30pm until 11am the next day, this small group will experience the reef environment exclusively, with the freedom to choose from relaxing on the pontoon, enjoy star gazing of the southern hemisphere sky, time to marvel at the glorious sunset and sunrise, or join hosts for a private snorkel and glass bottom boat tour.

Departs Monday, Thursday & Saturday (Blockout dates apply during Christmas & New Year, and Chinese New Year).
