Natures Great Events – 2021 Humpbacks, Minkes and Orcas

In 2021 we are launching a new series of whale experiences in Australia and Norway. Whether you are interested in experiencing the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef or the wonders of the Northern lights, there is something amazing for everyone in this series.

 

Humpback whales at Ningaloo Reef, WA

As the humpbacks arrive in large numbers to breed and give birth, you will bear witness to one of nature’s great events. The crystal clear waters of Ningaloo Reef are the perfect place for nurturing mothers teaching their calves how to be whales, while groups of whales demonstrate their overwhelming presence. Your day is filled with excitement, only stopping to explore the coral reefs and abundant marine life that inhabits the Western Australia coastline.

 

Minke whales, Great Barrier Reef, QLD

Minke whales make their way through the Great Barrier Reef during the winter months which makes June and July the best months to experience these beautiful creatures up close and personal. These inherently curious whales have been known to seek out and investigate vessels in the water and enjoy interacting with swimmers which makes for a wonderful experience.

 

Orcas, Norway

This trip is for anyone interested in orcas, humpback whales, Northern lights and spectacular fjords. The best time of the year for this phenomena is November and January when the balance between light and access to herring and whales is at its best. The winter days in Norway provide excellent light for photography. We will spend the daylight hours looking for whales and other wildlife and, if the opportunity occurs, snorkel in the crystal clear waters.

Travel here Next year!

As the world changes so dramatically and international travel becomes a distant memory, finding the confidence to explore this amazing natural world when we can, might take some time. In the meantime, we want to encourage as many people as possible to #travelherenextyear and explore our backyard.

With this in mind, we are launching a series of marine life experiences and interactions found only in Australia. We are calling this “Natures Great Events” Swim with Dolphins, dive with Great White Sharks, play with sealions, come face to face with whale sharks. We want you to stay safe but also be part of the adventure in our great outdoors.

And as soon as we can welcome our international visitors again, we want them to experience our beautiful country and this world class natural wonder we call home. Australia has so much to offer and as we endeavour to make this a safe place again, we hope you can join us and explore our beautiful coastline, unique wildlife and diverse environment.

Stay safe and see you on the other side.
