I live locally and took advantage of Dreamtime’s recent radio marketing campaign aimed at raising awareness to locals. The staff, boat and food supplied were all excellent. The reef, especially Milln Reef were awesome . Well and worthily recommend this reef immersion experience.


0 Pat McDade

Had a fabulous day with this crew. So friendly and helpful. Lots of interesting facts and information. The weather was perfect which helped but the real stars were the fish and of course the reef. Would thoroughly recommend.
