MINKE WHALES AND RIBBON REEFS - CAIRNS Three day, three night diving adventure

Swim with Minke Whales and explore the Ribbon Reefs

Monday 13 July to Thursday 16 July 2020

Green Level Trip

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. It’s only during the months of June and July, that divers may have the opportunity to interact with Minke Whales in the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef. It is a unique and remarkable encounter. The swim with Minke Whale trips are basically a modified version of the 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.
