Hervey Bay Eco Marine Tours acknowledges the Butchulla people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we operate today, and pay respects to their Elders past and present. We extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here today.

Hervey Bay Eco Marine Tours

A family owned business on a mission to create lasting change

The ocean is very special to us and we want to protect it; but to do so, we must understand nature and we believe there's not better teachers to learn from than the Butchulla people.


Through our ecotours we have created an opportunity for the community and visitors to learn and connect with the Great Sandy Straits as well as our local Indigenous culture. Join us and experience the local islands, snorkel our healthy reef, search for marine wildlife, all whilst listening to ancient Dreamtime stories from a local Butchulla man.


If you want to find more things to do in Hervey Bay, explore on Tours tab, here you will find all Hervey Bay tours available. We love to support our local community.

 Why us?


Easy access vessel

The Milbi is the only vessel in Hervey Bay that will allow you to walk in and out  easily with direct beach landings. If all you want is to stay in the vessel, do so and look through our glass bottom in the comfort of your dry clothes.


Step away from the hectic life

We take it chill to the rhythms of nature and the didgeridoo, we go slow to appreciate all the beauty that surrounds  the Great Sandy Straits. Our activities range from explorations underwater to just sitting down and relax in what will feel like your own private island.

Indigenous Experience


Only Indigenous experience in Hervey Bay combined with marine adventures and fun dreamtime stories delivered directly by  Butchulla people.


We navigate smooth waters

Our vessel, the Milbi, navigates through smooth waters only so you will have a truly relaxing experience from beginning to end, no motion sickness guaranteed! Happy holidays to remember!


We give back to nature

Profits from our tours subsidise the costs of our school excursions in the Fraser Coast region. We hope that a close experience that the students have with nature and the Butchulla people, will keep bringing a legacy of sustainability, community and kindness. When you choose us, you choose to protect our planet too!
