Sail to Solve 

Plastic Pollution

 

MER SCHOOL •  Hervey Bay, QLD 2019

 

A blissful week spent sailing the sea with whales WHILST tackling issues that matter. 

• MERMEN & MERMAIDS WELCOME • 

The whales are migrating south and come to frolic in the "Bay of Dreams." Come along to interact non-invasively and connect with the gorgeous creatures as we sail through the bay & pause to marvel at their grandness.

Experience ocean adventure, meditation, Ayurvedic vegan meals, yoga, learn how to be plastic free, engage in inspiring discussions, environmental activism workshops, and deep connection to other like-minded humans, whales, and water & wind element.

HERVEY BAY, QLD

7 Day Meeting of the Minds •  24 - 31 AUG  2019

 

This is a unique adventure ideal for ocean lovers to come together as friends to practice yoga, meditate, and explore the vibrant waters of Hervey Bay interacting with beautiful giants of the oceans. 

Whales are washing up on beaches with bellies full of plastic trash. In response to this, we want to put our energy into discussing plastic pollution, evaluating problems, and working on solutions. 

Throughout the week, we will be putting our brains together to tackle plastic pollution!

Make new friends, have a holiday, save the world!

*exclusively for those 18+ older*

All of the planned activities were far more meaningful and beautiful than I had thought possible.

Sexy Boat Sunset.JPG

Our accommodation will be a catamaran with 4 cabins, meaning shared queen beds. If you have a preference for your bunk mate, please specify, so that I can arrange both of you together.  All meals will be vegan (and delicious). Please get in touch ASAP with specific dietary requests, concerns, & questions!  We can assist with transportation pick up in the afternoon on Saturday 25 August and drop offs on midday Saturday 1 September. You are more than welcome to drive yourself to Hervey Bay and I can advise on safe, free parking.

I take all steps to ensure your safety, however boating and ocean adventure activities do have risks. I do not control the weather, though will work with it to bring you the best possible experience each day. It is recommend you have private travel insurance for any unforeseen circumstances. This also means the itinerary is subject to change on a daily if not hourly basis, and of course marine life interaction is never guaranteed, as we are playing in the wild sea and choose to support non-invasiveness tourism. I appreciate your flexibility as we adjust the schedule to ensure all activities fit.

You are encouraged to bring your own snorkel gear and wetsuit. Definitely bring your own yoga mat and towels.
