    What a fabulous holiday, thank you to the wonderful staff, incredible wildlife (swimming with Ray's, reef sharks, turtles, 100s of fish varieties, watching the noddy's, sea eagles, silver eyes and many more). Loved the wildlife presentations, knowledgeable passionate staff. We will definitely come back.
