Our adventures aim for sub-zero waste by using reusable products and if we see litter during our adventures, we clean it up so we try leaving every place we go to cleaner than we found it.
Dreaming of getting out into nature and giving your mind and body a boost?
We can’t wait to take you to @peninsulahotsprings over the coming months on Sunday mornings as part of our Hot Springs, Hikes & Humpbacks Adventure for bathing in the tranquility of nature and trying some #hotspringsyoga to be nice and warmed up for our guided coastal hike stopping for a picnic lunch whilst whale watching. The perfect active relaxation, available from late June to September.

As today is World Oceans Day, we wanted to give a call out to our friends at @sunbutterskincare who help to protect our oceans and our skin.
Sunbutter are a local Mornington Peninsula based company who produce reef safe, vegan and cruelty free sunscreen which also comes in a reusable plastic free container.
On all WAM! Adventures (all year round) we provide free Sunbutter to our guests so that we can guarantee we are not causing any damage to the ocean on the activities we offer. Come on an adventure and try it out!
Sunbutter also have a range of other bush & sea inspired products so we couldn’t recommend them more.
You can pick up a tin of Sunbutter from the WAM! online Eco Shop (use code: friendsofwam! for a discount)
WAM! wouldn't exist without the ocean and it's our lifeblood so we want to continue to do everything we can to protect it exactly like these guys do.

Hot Springs, Hikes & Humpbacks
We have created the perfect adventure on the Mornington Peninsula to warm up this winter and support whale conservation.
We’ll take you to bathe at some of the worlds best hot springs surrounded by nature, with hot springs yoga to stretch it out ready for a breathtaking coastal hike on the balcony of the Southern Ocean stopping for an Indigenous ingredient inspired picnic lunch, whilst spotting (with a bit of luck) magnificent humpbacks, southern right and killer whales on their annual migration.
On the eve of World Environment Day we’d also like to announce that for every booking, WAM! donates to #twobayswhaleproject
