Pacific Whale Foundation

Pacific Whale Foundation is an international NGO and world pioneer in sustainable ecotourism. We have been working to protect the oceans and marine life since being founded in 1980 to protect a declining humpback whale population from global threats, including commercial whaling.

Our mission is to protect the ocean through science and advocacy and inspire environmental stewardship. Our vision is to be the people’s environmental organisation for the protection of the world’s whales, dolphins, and other marine animals living wild in their natural habitat. We strive to share our love of whales and their ocean home through our research-based whale watching ecotours.

Pacific Whale Foundation Eco Adventures Australia PTY LTD is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific Whale Foundation. As a social enterprise, we use the profits from our cruises to support whale and dolphin research, marine education for children, and ocean conservation programs in Australia and around the world.
