Fly Dive Dwarf Minke Whale Expeditions | 3/4/7 Nights | June July Only | MBMinke

Between the months of May to July a very special event happens on the Great Barrier Reef in Far North Queensland Australia. It is the only event of its kind in the world and is so rare that it was only recognised in the 1980’s – the visiting of the elusive Dwarf Minke Whales. This is a rare opportunity for divers and snorkelers to come to the only place where you can see this once in a lifetime natural spectacular. Australian Traveller Magazine named this Minke Whale interaction on the Great Barrier Reef as one of the most “Incredible Travel Secrets in Australia”. Whoops! The secret is now out. Dwarf Minke Whales are very similar to Minke Whales, but are slightly smaller, hence their tag “Dwarf”. Though, if dwarfs were measured as 8 metres long and weighing up to five tons then “giant dwarfs” might be nearer the description. These curious, gentle and amazing animals come to the warmer waters of the Great Barrier Reef at this time to feed on lantern fish, krill and other crustaceans and small fish. It is not unknown to have populations of 100 or more feeding and cruising off the ribbon reefs of the Great Barrier Reef around this time. They are naturally curious and seem to enjoy their human friends and will approach boats and snorkelers spending hours with divers and snorkellers. It is this natural desire to interact that has enabled local diving and snorkelling operators to organise Dwarf Minke Whale dive and snorkel tours. Being in the water with these gentle giants is truly remarkable. You’ll never forget looking into the eyes of these amazing creatures as they gently approach and gracefully glide past you. You will realise how privileged you are to share the ocean with such beautiful animals and it truly is a humbling and almost life changing experience.
