#OceanSpirit

 

We celebrated World Oceans Day hosting a special event as a part of our regular Whale Watching Cruise. We organized kids activities on this cruise including reusable paper bag making tutorial, art and craft using recyclable material and group craft and painting sessions. We also sold re-usable wooden cutleries, re-usable bamboo straws, bamboo toothbrush and bio-degradable and eco-friendly plush toys in order to raise donations forAustralian Marine Conservation Society.

We also had representatives from Australian Marine Conservation Society on the boat sharing their current initiatives with passengers, discussing how we can all protect and help save the Oceans.
