Year 10 – Work Experience

Whalesong Cruises Hervey Bay gives back to the community it works and plays in. We recently hosted 2 x Year 10 students from Riverside Christian College in Maryborough, for work experience. They had an introduction of what it’s like to be a crew member on a whale watch boat (3 x cruises, with different crew and different weather conditions), and also what it’s like to run the business behind the scenes in the office.

Thanks Chloe and Mikayla for choosing your work experience with Whalesong Cruises.
