Upstairs from the main deck we have the upper deck which hosts the Captains Premium lounge. Our VIP area boasts 40 business class style leather reclining seats for maximum personal comfort during travel and floor to ceiling windows for maximum viewing of the ocean during the journey which is brilliant for dolphin, sea bird and whale spotting en route to the Lady Musgrave lagoon. VIP guests enjoy the benefits of a private upstairs bathroom, substantial flat screen televisions displaying Great Barrier Reef documentaries and smaller screens displaying the electronic chart plotter with the vessel’s course and speed. To the aft side of the Captains Lounge VIP seating we have shaded seating to take in the magnificent ocean views to the rear.

To soak in the beauty of our journey during travel or basking in sunshine once moored at the Lady Musgrave lagoon we have a superb open air sundeck on the 3rd level of the REEF EMPRESS. Stunning 360 degree views with a foredeck that seats up to 36 guests providing premium views of the coastline on departure and islands on arrival, you really are spoilt for choice on where to spend your time on the REEF EMPRESS.

Our world class catamaran has a Bauer Mariner compressor and 4 banks which ensure all diving cylinder refills are easily met to maximise guests time diving vs waiting for equipment. A desalinator makes up to 180 litres of fresh water and hour and supplies the three aft side warm showers after your snorkelling or diving experience. Our custom built rear of the vessel allows for excellent in water access via the duckboards and large in water steps for ease of access for all range of guest abilities.

We look forward to introducing you to the ‘Reef Empress’ – the Queen of the Sea on your next visit with Lady Musgrave Experience.
