Cairns Tourism News

Monday, June 28, 2010

Vagabond has spotted the first hump back whale this year this morning on the Great Barrier Reef ex Cairns.

Thursday, June 17, 2010

We’re delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new Night Dive, designed for small groups of adventure-seeking certified divers.

This is Cairns only night dive excursion, departing at 5.30pm to the Outer Reef and returning at 11.15pm. Launching on Thursday 1 July, The Night Dive will initially be conducted each Thursday, subject to weather conditions.

Discover a new kind of night life and dimension to the Great Barrier Reef!
Travelling aboard the luxurious, custom-designed Silverswift, certified divers can feel the adrenaline rush with two fully guided night dives with our experienced dive masters.

It’s a different world at night! After the sun goes down, there’s a whole new cast of creatures to discover... The lionfish are prowling, the reef sharks are cruising, the corals are feeding and the parrotfish are tucked away in their bubbles for a safe night...

Dive pristine coral reefs…
Located on the outer reef, Norman Reef is approximately 60nm from Cairns and boasts some of the region’s most pristine coral reefs and prolific marine biodiversity.

While adventure is high down under, safety is assured with our highly qualified crew and The Night Dive’s base from the Great Adventures’ Norman Reef platform.

In between dives, divers will enjoy a hearty soup to keep energy levels up for their next underwater adventure, while a sumptuous hot dinner awaits after the two exhilarating night dives.

For divers travelling with non-diving companions, they too can join in the excitement as a “topside” observer, view from the underwater observatory and take in the spectacular sunset and dine on the reef too!

The Night Dive offers certified divers an extraordinary and highly personal diving experience on the Great Barrier Reef.

The Night Dive Fact File

Who For?
Certified divers only, minimum age 14 years. PADI or equivalent certification card must be presented. 

Cost including EMC
Diver: $240 | Observer: $120 

Inclusions

  • Return fast catamaran cruise, departing from Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal
  • 2 x guided night dives

After 19 months of rehabilitation, Matilda the Hawksbill sea turtle has been released back into the waters of the Great Barrier Reef at Green Island, and in a first for our region, has been also been fitted with a satellite tracking device.

After making a full recovery from ‘floaters disease’ under the care of the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre, the once critically ill turtle was released into the waters of Green Island by CTRC volunteers with the assistance of Great Adventures.

Quicksilver Group Managing Director, Tony Baker said “Green Island is a natural habitat for turtles and Great Adventures is pleased to assist with the wonderful work by CTRC a-not-for-profit community organisation. Their work is vital in assisting sick and injured turtles back into the wild and donations from companies such as ourselves and the wider community are vital to making sure these turtles find a way home.”

Saturday June 12th was a great day to be out in the Agincourt Reefs, with multiple sightings of Minke Whales on board POSEIDON.  The first encounter
was with a solitary whale while at the dive site on Light Reef, and most of the passengers were able to enjoy an in-water experience with the curious
animal while it circled the snorkellers close up, enabling Poseidon's photographer to obtain several great shots. See image below.

When Poseidon reluctantly left the whale and moved on to the next site, passengers and crew were rewarded by having three more whales circle the
boat during lunch, resulting in great top-side photo opportunities.

Poseidon is one of only 3 day boats permitted to conduct in-water snorkelling with Dwarf Minke Whales, and now that they have "arrived" at the
Agincourt Reefs, many more encounters can be expected.

Reef Magic are happy to announce we will be operating our Whale Watching Tours again this season. Below is a basic outline of how the tours will operate.

Planned Operating Dates:

  • Commencement Date: Monday 19th July 2010
  • Last Tour Date: Monday 30th August 2010

It's normally a shorter season this far north due to the warmer waters but last season we were able to run the tours for 6 weeks straight with almost 100% sightings apart from 1 day.

The start and finish dates are subject to change and dependant on whale activity.
We may commence earlier to run for longer however this is the date range we are predicting.
