three days exploring the great barrier reef & searching for minke encounters.

Explore the Great Barrier Reef with a high chance of a Minke encounter!

For a limited time only (everyTuesday from 30th May with last trip Tuesday 01 August 2023) Pro Dive Cairns is offering special three-day, three-night Minke encounter liveaboards to the Great Barrier Reef. Traveling to the Minke hotspots on the ribbon reefs off Port Douglas and Cooktown, this liveaboard trip is perfect for the diver looking for that next level of marine life encounter. 

While Minke's operate on their own schedule and no encounter can ever be guaranteed, the liveaboard format allows for multiple sites popular with migrating Minkes, so encounters are highly likely. If Minkes are encountered at a dive site, divers will have the option to complete one of their up to 10 dives or snorkel with the Minke whales.

 

All this while still visiting a variety of outer Great Barrier Reef dive locations, giving you the chance to explore the very best of this Natural Wonder of the World. Along with Minke hotspots, you will visit a variety of outer Great Barrier Reef locations, all selected for their extravagance of marine life and excellent visibility.    

Between dives, relax in comfort onboard one of our three premium  Scubapro dive boats; these purpose-built liveaboard dive vessels; these feature air-conditioned twin or double cabins, spacious decks, WiFi, catered meals, and the comforts of home. With small passenger numbers and close crew-to-guest ratios, a high-quality, personalised experience from our dedicated staff is ensured at all times.

 


Departing Cairns every Tuesday from 30 May until 1 August 2023, this three-day, three-night liveaboard trip offers a truly memorable and exciting way to fully immerse yourself and experience our magnificent World Heritage Great Barrier Reef environment. 

 

Please Note: some medical conditions may prevent you diving and you will be required to complete a waiver and medical statement prior to the trip. If you have recently/continue to suffer from an illness or condition that may affect your dive fitness,  or currently taking any prescription medication, you will need to consult a doctor for a 'fit to dive' medical certificate.
