A very warm thank you to our staff and team who help us maintain the standard that we are so proud to uphold.
Responsible Whale Watching
This year Hervey Bay has been officially recognised by the World Cetacean Alliance as an accredited Whale Heritage Site. Our region’s whale watching experiences are leading the way for responsible cetacean ecotourism experiences worldwide, helping tourists and travellers make informed, ‘gold star’ decisions when witnessing these amazing creatures in the wild.
Tasman Venture also holds Advanced Ecotourism certification from Ecotourism Australia. Responsible, respectful tourism is at the heart of what we do. It is incredible to see how these beautiful creatures feel safe enough to interact with us; they will approach the boat, roll to the side and watch us with the same curiosity that we have for them!
