With Autumn starting here in Australia, we have immediately felt the cool weather break the summer months. This is great news environmentally as what, at the beginning of the summer, looked like it could have been a year where we see a lot of coral bleaching on the Cairns reefs. Mother nature has once again shown us that she is well on top of her game, and a lot smarter then the rest of us. Early seasonal monsoon rains gave cooling relief in the afternoons and kept the oceans cool and the reef in it’s full spectacular colours.
Whale migration will be starting in the next few months, with whale numbers increasing year of year this year promises to be another spectacular year. It will be hard to beat the experiences and encounters our guests had with whales last year but as the whale population returns to normal and with their playful spirit we are sure that it will just keep getting better.
It’s that time again when we start ramping up for a busy season and spots on the boats fill up months in advance. So if you are planning to visit the Great Barrier Reef this year make sure that you start planning your Australian sailing and diving trip early and book now to get the best trips and accommodation. Remember we only take 10 guests at a time for that unique experience so space is limited.
Diving the Great Barrier Reef is simply amazing and having a camera to capture your dives is a must. To help you out we now have digital cameras available for hire/rent on-board. We supply a quality digital camera hire which allows you to get quality digital underwater photography without the price tag and having to carry it around on your travels
As always we do this with a little extra service. We will deliver your camera to your accommodation the night before your departure. When you return from your trip we will pick up the camera from the boat, process and burn the images to disk and deliver them to your accommodation within 24 hours, or post anywhere in the world. To ensure your photos are great we automatically process your images through a special (secret) Photoshop recipe.
We chose Olympus 7.1 megapixel cameras for their image quality and toughness. The cameras feature 3 underwater settings and a video mode. If this sounds complicated don’t worry, part of the service is a brief underwater photography tutorial from one of our experienced representatives.
Just add the digital camera to your cart at time of booking and we’ll take care of the rest, it’s that easy.
The weather and fish life have had a great start to 2009 with beautiful blue and calm seas as well as the marine life including fish and turtles being very active. Some afternoon lightening providing a beautiful light show that only mother nature knows how to put on. Perfectly flat and clear seas all the way out to the reef and excellent visibility on the reef are making every trip something special. Come and join us in this wonderful experience, check to to see if spaces are still available on a date that suits you.
