We report on observations of MAXI J1305-704 (Sato et al., ATEL #4024) taken with the Swift X-ray Telescope (XRT). We have been performing regular short (1ks) observations of this object. During the observation beginning April 12th, 2012 at 17:53 UT we see a feature in the light-curve that appears to be a dip, similar to those seen in MAXI J1659-152 (e.g. Kennea et al., 2011, ApJ, 736, 22). This dip is accompanied by spectral hardening, likely due to increased photoelectric absorption during the dip.
