 Swim with Dwarf Minke Whale Expeditions
For a few months each year Dwarf minke whales appear in the Far Northern waters of the Great Barrier Reef. While visiting the tropics they a show a remarkable interest in people/boats and often maintain close and prolonged in-water encounters (which can last for several hours!). This remarkable behaviour happens no-where else in the world and has allowed for a small and sustainably managed swim with whale industry to emerge. John Rumney and his team at Eye to Eye Marine Encounters (formerly of Undersea Explorer) helped pioneer this industry and were instrumental in the development of the dwarf minke whale watching guidelines, which have been adopted by the IWC as Best Practice and have helped in the creation of similar legislation in several other countries.  Eye to Eye Marine Encounters offers scheduled and custom swim with dwarf minke whale expeditions each June/July. As world leaders in sustainable and eco friendly whale interactions (all encounters are carried out on the whale's terms) they strive to provide each guest with an unforgettable marine experience.
