MINI Minke Whale Sojourn 2019

Thursday 20th June to Wednesday 26th June

 4 nights on the Great Barrier Reef

and 2 nights in Cairns!

Join us during the migration of the Dwarf Minke Whales. Only discovered in the 1980s, they are the only whale known to initiate human interactions.

They are incredibly curious and in water encounters can last for hours. When we are not swimming alongside these amazing creatures we dive the beautiful outer reefs.

This includes world famous dive sites such as Steve's Bommie and Lighthouse Bommie.

Our extended dive trip has been organised especially for our group and is not to be missed!

We have up to 16 dives, including 4 night dives with the option to upgrade to the amazing fluoro diving experience too. The included 'Sharks in the Dark' are an added bonus!

Joining this group trip includes: all meals onboard, ensuite cabins, Dwarf Minke Whale presentations, shuttles, t-shirt, taxes, games/competitions and Cairns accommodation before and after the boat.

This trip has our own Trip Leader onboard the boat, taking care of all logistics of for you!
