We have just received some exciting news and a great addition to any bespoke, tailor made holiday. From June 2016 visitors will be able to swim with humpback whales at Ningaloo Reef as the West Australian government has granted licenses for a select number of operators. Western Australia’s humpback whale population had steadily recovered since the end of commercial hunting of this species in Australia in 1963. It is now the largest population in the world, with an estimated 30,000 whales migrating along the coast each year.
Environment Minister Albert Jacob said the safety of whales and participants was a key consideration of the programme and there would be strict operational guidelines and monitoring of in-water interaction with humpbacks. Tours will run until October.

Take a humpback whale or whale shark swim or guests also have access to stand-up paddle boards and kayaks on board the company’s Concorde cruiser – a purpose built, 14.5 metre expedition power vessel.

I know it seems a long way off yet but if you are starting to think about your 2017 holiday why not look at something unique – sailing through the Panama Canal on a ship that carries just 64 passengers.
During this seven night cruise you will start off in Panama City. From there you will have an amazing opportunity to experience the untouched Darién Jungle. You will explore the Punta Patiño Nature Reserve on foot and travel down the Mogue River by motorised dugout canoe. Your expedition guide will be on hand to help you identify the many species of wildlife that live in the jungle.
Explore the flora and fauna of the mostly uninhabited Pearl Islands. At certain times of the year this is where you will be able to see dolphins and humpbacks so keep your eyes peeled.
At the Mira Flores Locks you will travel the 48 miles of the Panama Canal as you go between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. You will learn the history of this important waterway with a presentation from the Panama Canal Authority.
Take a step back in time as you walk among the battlements and canon of San Lorenzo Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Changres River is Panama’s largest river and was the used to transport the Incan gold in Colonial times. As you experience the river first hand by paddle board and kayak look out for the hundreds of birds and other wildlife that surround you.
Ever had the dream of being on a stunning white sand beach surrounded by nothing but palm trees then this will become a reality as you visit some of the 360 islands that make up Guna Yala. Experience daily life as you visit a village and spend time with the locals. Visit the market and buy a souvenir or a gift for friends and family.
This is a new cruise and with only 32 cabins don’t wait as it’s likely to sell quickly, call us today on 01313 446550 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about your next bespoke tailor made adventure.
