Package Details

Discover the Great Barrier Reef & Snorkel with Minke Whales
There are few opportunities in a lifetime where you can experience the thrill of sharing the water with a creature as magnificent as a whale. During the months of June and July, divers and snorkellers may have the opportunity to interact with dwarf minke whales in the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef. This is a unique and remarkable encounter. Our swim with minke whale trips are basically a modified version of our 3 Day / 3 Night Cod Hole trips. We spend lots of time exploring the amazing dive sites of the remote Ribbon Reef, with an underlying focus at all times to maximise in-water encounters with the whales. These tours are strictly seasonal, to coincide with the whales’ migration.
