There are few chances in life where you can share the ocean with some of the most beautiful creatures of the deep. During this four night expedition, you will experience the thrill of diving with majestic Minke Whales in the pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Departing from Cairns, you will cruise along the iconic Great Barrier Reef bound for the warm waters of the Ribbon Reefs, where these magnificent eight metre, 6-tonne creatures migrate to in the winter months. The inquisitive nature of these whales means that interactions with snorkelers and divers are plentiful, with a success rate of over 90%. They often stay engaged with the vessel and swimmers for around two hours on average, but can last much longer. You'll be left speechless as you come eye to eye with these graceful whales as well as other kaleidoscopic coral and fish. These magical moments will last for a lifetime.
Throughout the trip, you will take part in up to 16 guided scuba dives. At night, scuba divers can exclusively experience the sharks in the dark diving opportunity, where you'll come face-to-face with harmless Australian reef sharks. In the gentle light cast from the vessel, ogle at all the friendly marine animals patrol and play about in their natural playground. With all meals and tea and coffee included, your stay is comfortable and hassle free. Be prepared to be awe struck and captivated by these majestic creatures of the deep!
