To be the most environmentally conscious, informative and fun seafaring adventure company in Australia.
We endeavour to deliver an unparalleled ocean experience for patrons which is fun and illuminating, providing education in the areas of ocean conservation, marine life and ecology, whether that be whale watching tours, swimming with whales or lots more.
We love the ocean, we love the marine life within it and we want nothing more than to share that love and passion with you!
With a love of the environment comes a strong devotion to environmental sustainability. Our goal is to stop further deterioration of our planet and its oceans, by educating and encouraging a shift in human behaviour toward a more symbiotic relationship with nature.
An important part of our everyday schedule is to ensure that this business helps provide opportunity for continued research and education, particularly around whales. We partake in and assist with academic and altruistic research activities.
Our Marine Biologist (Blaise Hodgson) will be leading the research charge with ongoing partnerships at local schools and universities.
We hope to inspire your love of the ocean with our Gold Coast whale watching tours and other eco adventures activities.
Here are some things we do to reduce our environmental impact
We use Biodegradable and reef friendly cleaning products and provide reef safe sunscreen onboard. This helps reduce the impact of harsh chemicals on the reef and marine life.
Plastic free wherever possible
We have reduced our single use plastic waste or cut it out entirely wherever we can.
No touch, no take
All our guests are informed about the marine life they are going to see in and out of the water. A no touch, no take policy implemented on all tours, ensures minimal disturbance to marine life.
Minimal marine emissions
The boat’s engines are serviced and updated regularly to ensure efficiency and minimal emissions. The engines are two best in-class Suzuki 250hp with a fuel burn of approx 50L Per tour
Its going to be a Clean & Green machine.
The company Troop Carrier is shortly to be upgraded to a Hydrogen enhancing fuel system, which will double the mileage and reduce 99% of the emissions coming out the tail pipe.
We compost our food scraps, leftovers and our coffee cups so that less ends up in landfill.
All crew uniforms our made from recycled materials and are fair trade certified.
Our wetsuits are made from renewable Yulex natural rubber. It is tapped from the Hevea tree that can produce rubber for over 30 years. It replaces conventional non-renewable neoprene. They are also fair trade certified. Having said that, Gold Coast waters are generally fairly warm during whale watching tour season.)
