Be left in awe as you experience the thrill of swimming amongst majestic Minke Whales on this four night expedition on the Great Barrier Reef. With up to five snorkelling spots per day, you will experience a number of remarkable encounters in the magical underwater world. Includes meals and drinks.
The opportunity to share the ocean with one of the larger creatures of the deep does not come abundantly. Now's your chance to experience the thrill of swimming with majestic Minke Whales in the pristine waters of the Great Barrier Reef during this four night expedition! Departing from Cairns, you will travel along the iconic Great Barrier Reef set for the tropical 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 tend to stay engaged with the vessel and swimmers for around two hours on average, but can last much longer. Be captivated as you come eye to eye with these graceful whales, an experience unforgettable.
You will visit five snorkelling spots per day, exploring the very best of this natural wonder. At night, scuba divers are able to explore the reef in the dark and marvel at the friendly marine animals that come out to play, including harmless Australian reef sharks. Although divers are only permitted in the water, snorkelers can ogle at these colourful creatures in the gentle lights cast from the vessel. If conditions are calm, you may even get the chance to put on a mask and peek under the surface. It's common for reef sharks to pass just by the vessel. With all meals and tea and coffee included, your stay is comfortable and hassle free. Experience nature at its finest and many magical moments that will last a lifetime.
