We stayed at the Boat Haven Spa Resort which had stunning views over the harbor and we got to catch up with one of our favorite Happy Faces, Clemmy Morin.
The first trip was with Eco barge clean seas, who provide Eco conscious travelers the opportunity to cruise the Islands free of charge in exchange for a morning of litter picking on the beaches. Eco barge aims to
(1) remove marine debris to reduce its impacts;
(2) reduce land-based litter and littering behavior to prevent the occurrence of local marine debris; and
(3) provide care for sick and injured marine turtles.
In 2014 the crew along with their volunteers ran 40 trips, and removed 12,607 kilograms of primarily plastic marine debris from the Whitsunday region. Lets keep our beaches clean!!
Happy Faces feel passionate about the protection of marine life and if you would like to learn more, or want to help, check out the Eco barge Clean Seas website:
The second trip was with White haven Express and was an incredible day of bush walking, sailing, building sandcastles on fine white sand, snorkeling the reef at Hook Island, and beach barbecues with some awesome people. The lookout point at Hill Inlet did not disappoint and it's hard to believe it's even a real place when you are there. Amazing.
