Join Spirit of Freedom for a special expedition to the Ribbon Reefs to swim with Minke Whales! This extraordinary expedition, coinciding with the migration of whales is due to begin its journey June next year into July.

The Spirit of Freedom Swim with Minke Whale trip is a modified version of the 3 Day / 3 Night Cod Hole trips. Guests spend lots of time exploring the amazing dive sites of the remote Ribbon Reef, with an underlying focus at all times to maximise in-water encounters with the whales. Over two and half days you will have the opportunity for up to 11 dives and as much in-water swim time with the whales as we can manage.
