Today is World Oceans Day.
The ocean is everything to us and WAM would not exist without it.
We live, work and play on and in the ocean, it connects us and heals us.
Our ocean covers 70% of the planet and supports life as we know it
Every second breath we take comes from the ocean
Our ocean feeds billions of people
Our ocean hosts 80% of the world’s biodiversity.
However, our oceans are in crisis and need our protection.
Here are some of the ways WAM is committed to protecting and supporting the ocean:
🌊We operate our eco adventures at zero waste which prevents plastic waste from entering the ocean
🌊We carry portable bins and clean up rubbish we see along our coastlines or in the ocean
🌊We provide WAM guests with free reef-safe sunscreen from the legends at @sunbutterskincare
🌊We support local conservation projects who are doing incredible work regenerating reefs (more details coming soon)
🌊We provide WAM guests a free towel service. The beautiful towels by @somersideaus are made from recycled plastic diverting bottles which may have otherwise ended up in the ocean
🌊We are turning plastic waste into awesome funky items which we are going to be selling with 100% profits going back to funding ocean clean-ups and conservation (more details coming soon)
We’ll take you to spots with no wifi but with plenty of connection.

As always the Mornington Peninsula Didn’t disappoint and was looking it’s spectacular best.
It was a real privilege to have the extremely talented @finmatson @harrypope and @maxfairclough and their skills capturing the essence of what WAM is all about!

Book a guilt free picnic with WAM this summer…
Not only did we search high and low for the best picnic spots on the Peninsula but we also searched high and low for a picnic set up that was waste free.
Our picnic boxes are made of compostable pulp, no plastic windows in the box, boxes which are home compostable rather than ‘commercially compostable’.
Our picnic grazing boxes are filled with fresh local produce infused with native ingredients from our friends at local Indigenous owned @cooeecafe
We provide these in insulated backpacks with water and a refreshing non alcoholic drink from the fantastic @etchsparkling , along with the equipment, beautiful picnic mat and a curated route map so all that’s left for you to do is discover the best picnic locations on the #morningtonpeninsula on an adventure hike, bike or SUP.
And damn does the food taste better and the view more epic when you have done a bit of exercise to get there!
Click link in bio to book our self-guided (and guilt free) Adventure Picnics…
Some of our favourite routes to choose from include:
🚲 Bike the Red Hill Rail Trail through forests and past vineyards ending at a stunning beach for a picnic
🥾 Hike along dramatic coastlines passing rock pools with a viewpoint picnic looking out over the southern ocean
🐬 Enjoy a SUP lesson before embarking on a self guided paddle (your picnic comes in an insulated picnic bag that attaches to your SUP) to a idyllic cove for a beach picnic
“If I can give this review a rating of more than 5 stars, I would. Nic is super organised, detailed oriented and pleasant company! I really appreciate how he caters to make this experience eco-friendly and how he also helps local businesses through the packet we got for the day. I genuinely enjoyed the SUP, picnic, hike and hot spring hero tour experience. Thank you Nic!”

Welcome to the new and improved WAM Van.
You’re remarkable experience starts the moment you step foot on board, it won’t feel like you are on a standard tour vehicle, more a sanctuary on wheels!
All the features have been carefully designed to add to our guests comfort and experience whilst also being practical so we can deliver our exceptional day eco adventures on the #morningtonpeninsula
Some of the features include:
> Funky new colours and seats with cushions for added comfort
> Upcycled fishing net storage hammocks under each seat (discarded fishing gear makes up a huge amount of ocean waste so we upcyled some)
> Fold down bar for refreshing local drinks or coffee/tea when we back onto sensational viewpoints The Ninch is famous for
> Sofa at the back to kick back and enjoy the views. This even flips over so we can clip bikes in for some of our mountain bike adventures
> Lots of other features including an indoor plant, native scents and of course our eco packs so you are provided a service that’s second to none
Naturally we worked with a local business on the build and a huge amount of thanks and gratitude to James and Ritchie at @hutchcampers for their amazing skills creating exactly what we were looking for.
