Eye to Eye Marine Encounters's Diary


Swim with Dwarf minke whales on the Great Barrier Reef or dive with sharks at Osprey Reef in the Coral Sea (voted one of the top 10 shark dives in the world!) on one of our scheduled 4-6 day or custom charters.  Connect with nature through exciting wildlife encounters as our experienced crew and guest researchers share their passion and knowledge for the marine world. For the ultimate in underwater adventures join Eye to Eye Marine Encounters.

Eye to Eye Marine Encounters is a locally run family business with over 30 years of experience on the Great Barrier Reef.  John Rumney and his team go above and beyond to provide great wildlife encounters and unlike other operators, keep a flexible itinerary (selecting sites based on weather conditions and seasonal marine highlights) to guarantee that passengers get the best out of each dive site. The crew’s attitude, enthusiasm and a constant quest for adventure and fun have won them the respect and loyalty of many passengers who return year after year to join in these unique expeditions.

Wow, Mark - fantastic! Can we get in touch and chat about this. Perhaps you could email me your phone number. I'd like to find out a bit more. I'm also about to publish this in a slightly different format to draw out the photo. Great find! Simon (Wildiaries)

Amazing experience! This trip was by far the best thing Ive ever done. The crew were extremely knowledgeable and respectful of the whales and made sure that we were all well briefed on 'minke etiquette'. Our good manners underwater meant that the whales trust in us grew over time and eventually lead to them approaching within a few feet of us! To be that close to a large wild animal is an experience that will stick with me forever. I think everyone should do this at least once (if not more!) in their life.
