Memorable day trip

Sunlover cruise to Arlington reef is wonderful, crews are friendly, education on board is informative, we were lucky to have some sunshine while we were snorkeling, the sea creatures are plentiful nearby the pontoon, BBQ lunch was yummy & plentiful, we definitely come back next wet season
