News Update June 2020

Exciting times ahead … our hiatus from the Ocean is over … and it could not have come at a better time.  

Our first departure left on June 18th right in the middle of one of the most exciting seasons of the year which is to go and ‘SWIM WITH THE MINKES’!
Whilst we’re very sorry knowing that many of you had hoped and dreamed of swimming with these magnificent whales, I’m confident they’ll be as excited as we are that we’ve turned up and we’ll let them know you hope to make it next year.

Having been waiting with bated breath for just when restriction would ease, we have been extremely busy making plans to deal with the scenarios presented to us. We have implemented new Covid-19 plans to take us back to sea safely and have NEW itineraries available to predominantly the Australia domestic market, as we wait for international travel restrictions to ease.

Our new Coral Sea & Cod Hole and Cod Hole & Ribbon Reefs itineraries give you the diver an extra night on the reef and extra dives. Our special expeditions during Oct-Dec are the 7 Night Far North Coral Sea and the 6 Night Yongala Wreck & Coral Sea.

At this juncture, our new itineraries will remain in place until the end of March 2021 at which point, we will revert to our original itineraries on the anticipation of international travel re-opening.

Please check our website for expeditions and departure dates.
Once again, we thank you for your patience and we are very excited to get back to work and back to exploring the oceans with you once again.

Stay safe and healthy.
