I enjoyed a very easy dive with Julien. We saw a range of creatures, including fish, turtles and shrimp. Always wanted to see what those sunken trees hid, so managed to get up close.

Glad you enjoyed your dive with Julien, sadly he has moved on to another part of Australia before going home. It is very interesting to see what you can find hidden in the fresh water.

Thank you so much Jadie for your awesome review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your day and the relaxed friendly manner. I try to make it as though you were a friend just coming with me for a fun dive and day. Yes we went overtime but as you said it adds to the value and I am so glad you enjoyed patting the friendly bull. Once again thank you for the compliment and I also look forward to diving with you again.
