Ecotourism

Our Ocean Is Our Asset

Whalesong Cruises Hervey Bay introduced a new environmentally-friendly boat in 2011 with leading-edge technology and state of the art comfort.

We pride ourselves on working with the local community in Hervey bay to preserve the area in which we work and play. That’s why we have obtained our Eco-Tourism certification from Australia’s leading and most innovative eco-tourism certification body, Ecotourism Australia.  We've actually achieved 'Advanced' Ecotourism status which means our products and processes are

We work to produce a minimal impact on the environment through best practice operations:

  • follow the principles of reducing, reuse, recycle (in that order too)
  • eliminated all single-use plastic
  • all cutlery, crockery, cups, glasses are all reusable (a practice we've embraced for over 20 years)
  • fuel-efficient engines
  • oil efficient engines and filters (therefore, using approx. 1/3 of the oil other boats use)
  • respect for the local Aboriginal (Butchulla) culture as we believe sustainability embraces the environment as well as culture.
