Minke's Most Wanted This years Minke Whale sighting season is underway. As one of the few permitted operators to Swim With Minke Whales, Spirit of Freedom crew and passengers have been drafted to look out for 4 particular minke whales. Last year researchers and scientists successfully tagged 4 minke whales and managed to track them on their journey south. One whale was tracked over 6,000km's to the sub-antarctic. This is very exciting as it's the first time that researchers have had the opportunity to monitor minke whales other than on the Ribbon Reefs of the GBR. All photographs and video footage taken during this Minke Whale season has been asked to be donated to the Minke Whale Project http://www.minkewhaleproject.org. Spirit of Freedom is also hosting Minke Whale researchers onboard during our 3 Day Cod Hole trips to assist the Minke Whale Project in the collection of data and contribute to the continuing study of these delightful whales. Space is still available on selected departures this June/ July, or enquire for our 2015 departures.

SoF Rocks on Trip Advisor Only 6 months into our listing, Spirit of Freedom currently ranks #9 of 114 Cairns Attractions on the popular Trip Advisor Website. Thanks a million to the contributor for this recent review...... "SOF combine outstanding diving with great service. I was left speechless not just by the diving, but by the way the crew pay such attention to every little detail, are quite strict with safety, and do all this in a way that seems effortlessly friendly and casual. After half a day on board it was like being with long-term friends..."

FITZROY ISLAND BOUNCES BACK FROM CYCLONE ITA AND IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS AS NORMAL FROM MONDAY THE 14TH OF APRIL. Find recent updates via our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/FitzroyIslandQueensland For the safety of guests and staff the island was evacuated last Thursday. A small team lead by resort owner Doug Gamble and General Manager Glen MacDonald, remained on the Island throughout the storm. Cyclone Ita passed over the island late on Saturday night and the resort team quickly cleared away fallen trees and debris left by high winds. The five sea turtles living in the tanks at the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre were moved to a purpose built cyclone safe enclosure in a secure area. The turtles are safe and were moved back into the purpose built sea turtle centre on Sunday by our staff; Turtle Tours are now operating daily. Glen MacDonald reported, "the conditions were extreme, guests were safely evacuated prior to Ita's arrival, we were lucky as no damage was sustained and are pleased to report within 24 hours it is back to business as usual, the seas are flat and calm, the sun is shining and we look forward to welcoming returning guests. Fitzroy Island remains a favourite playground for locals and visitors that seek an authentic natural island experience. Owner Doug Gamble is pleased to see visitors returning to enjoy the island's facilities. "It's good to see people enjoying the island," he said "Our focus is on everything local - we stock Blue Sky beer, the fish on our menu is caught locally, we use local produce in our kitchens and we employ a lot of local staff."
