What Is Reef Encounter’s Top Deck Club?

Much like ‘first class’ with an airline, it’s a trip that’s tailored to your personal needs and so everybody’s Top Deck experience will be specialised.

Top Deck liveaboard tours come with many additional luxuries including (but not limited to) a dedicated personal valet, late check-out times and deluxe three course evening meals. Read on for more exclusive Top Deck services…

A crew member just for you! Whether it’s a professional in-water guide for private snorkel/scuba tours, a fountain of marine-life knowledge or all of the above, your personal crew member ensures your holiday flows the way you want it to.
