A family owned business on a mission to create lasting change.

After spending over 40 years at sea, surrounded by marine life, diving the reefs, whilst always being passionate indigenous culture, we noticed that there wasn’t an opportunity for the community and our visitors to learn and connect with the Great Sandy Straits as well as our local Butchulla culture.

So we combined our skills & passions to create Hervey Bay Eco Marine Tours. 

On the tours, our guests experience the local islands of the Great Sandy Straits, snorkel our unbelievably healthy reef, learn about sustainability as well as different ways we can individually help the oceans, whilst listening to ancient dreamtime stories from our local Butchulla guide - including an incredible cultural experience on the island.
To meet the needs of our guests - ranging from individuals, couples, elderly and families, we operate our famous Turtle Discovery Tours daily, Sunset tours on Wednesdays & Friday evenings, as well as private daily island escapes per request.
We would love to have you join us on board, with the opportunity to snorkel amongst coral gardens, search for Milbi's, dolphins, fish, reef sharks and sting rays - you may even be lucky enough to sight the odd dugong.

Our tours vary day to day with the conditions nature provides. All we hope is that you get the chance to disconnect from your day to day, relax and immerse yourself in the beauty of mother nature.
We look forward to welcoming you onboard the Milbi soon,
Wil and Jacqui Hikuwai.
