WOW! I just put the DVD in and the reefs are amazing. I hope to dive Fiji at one point in my life. At first I thought....this has to be photoshopped, but then I see the surge of the soft corals and too many fish for it not to be an actual reef. Excellent DVD, the best I've ever seen and I own 4 other supposed reef DVD's which are mostly somebody's reef aquarium at home with 5 or 6 fish. 5 stars Mates to the developers which are from Australia.

This is the only one to buy, you will not regret it. Viewing on my 46" LCD and my BP is now down 20 points. Kids would love this too for you stay at home Mom's that are going nuts over seeing "Dora the Exployer" 100 times a day. If you're a scuba diver it will give you the fix you need until you go down again.........Make sure you buy the 2nd edition which is the wide screen version for todays larger TV's.

I purchased this DVD because I love to have interesting stuff on my flat screen. This is a very good quality DVD with very peaceful videos of marine life. The fish are very calming and the transitions are extremely smooth. This is a great video to leave on while entertaining. The music is very calming. I am also an avid scuba diver so it was also nice to se all the marine life. I hope to see more of these videos in the future.

This DVD is so artistically filmed and edited! It immerses me into a relaxing zone and is a welcome contrast to TV shows and movies. It's perfect to show when friends are over for a glass of wine and sometimes I play it while puttering around my house since it has a nice soundtrack too (but it quickly becomes a diversion from my projects as I find myself sitting down to watch it)! From the professional videographers who created the Marine Life of Fiji and Tonga - these two DVDs complement each other well. Reefscapes weaves together beautiful and captivating scenes of Fiji's pristine hard and soft coral forests, while the Marine Life DVD provides an in-depth look at the gorgeous creatures living in the reef. Both are great gifts and timeless additions to any DVD collection.

This is GREAT.
I love the fact that the camera is in one position for long enough to really enjoy what you are seeing. I also love the fact that you have a choice between either natural soundtrack or music. This is a difficult option to find in relaxation tapes.

I purchased this dvd to show my art students before we started our Sea Life paintings. The Upclose portion was about 20 minutes long and the students were fascinated and motivated. (great dvd for all ages) The longer version would have been too boring for them.
The longer version is more for relaxing, background for a party or event. The entire dvd would be wonderful for Alzheimer's patients to watch instead of putting them in front of a loud tv show that they will never be able to comprehend. Many Alzheimer's patients have anxiety and this beautiful dvd would be very soothing to them.

These are stunning views of a real coral reef. Lots of colorful fish move through each scene. Schools of purple and orange fishes swarm over the reef. Other fishes move through each shot. Sometimes larger fish are in the background. The scene periodically changes, with gentle cross-fades that don't interrupt the mood, while giving more variety to what is seen on screen. The video is really sharp and looks great. These reefs are really healthy.

This is more interesting than an aquarium. And on my wide screen HD TV, is as sharp, more colorful, and as big as a real aquarium. But I don't have to clean it, or remember to feed the fish. There's more variety, and just more fish, than you would ever see in an aquarium. And live corals too.

It's just the thing to play for ambiance, or in a lobby or waiting room.

And if you are really interested in fish like I am, the section "A Closer Look" names many of the fish seen on the reef. It shows a closeup of each one for a little while, with the name displayed on the screen.

Having been to Fiji before, I thought it would be impossible to capture the experience on video. However, after getting this DVD, I was wrong! It's just like being on the reef and seeing all the fish and soft coral that Fiji is known for. I found myself relaxing just as if I was diving: what a treat. I don't know how the folks who made it did it, but they did a super job of capturing the reef as it truly is. A must buy for divers and anyone interested in sea life.

This is a great DVD. I almost did not purchase it because a reviewer's comments about small fish. Glad I did. It is a series of reefs with fish in natural environment. Beautiful in widescreen. Relaxing to watch. This is not an artificial aquarium where one expects to look at fish as if they were an anatomy project. It is a view of reef life. If you were to purchase a DVD called 'Landscapes', you would not expect to look at one leaf on a tree, right? I like this DVD very much.

The picture quality is great. I purchased this to use as a screensaver on my plasma tv when just chilling. I also bought one for my mom who is in a nursing home with dementia. I put it on loop and leave it running for her all day. She thinks she has an aquarium and it helps keep her calm.

I was hoping this would be available in Blu-Ray, since it would be eye-popping spectacular. But as DVDs go, it's still might impressive.
