Combining two of Australia’s natural World Heritage sites – The world’s largest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef, and the ancient, tropical rainforests of Daintree National Park, Majestic Whales Encounters is offering a limited-time offer on its new whale swim adventure in north Queensland. The package will see travellers join a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with the rare dwarf minke whales, snorkel on the famous reef and stay in rainforest treehouses at Silky Oaks, a luxury, eco lodge and spa.
The 10-night ‘Swim with Dwarf Minke Whales’ package is the first Queensland trip offered by Australian company, Majestic Whale Encounters, which is known for its whale swim holidays in Tonga.

Beginning on June 28, 2019, the whale swim holiday aims to coincide with the dwarf minke whales’ annual migration to the north Queensland Ribbon Reefs – the only place in the world where you can swim with them. Their inquisitive nature brings them close to boats, divers and snorkelers, often swimming just a metre away as they playfully lift their heads out of the water to observe the boats, tail-slap the water and breach These close encounters and interactions can last many hours.
