How You Can Help

At Ocean EcoVentures we firmly believe making grassroots change through education and conservation at a household level can help our local marine ecosystem. These changes can be applied to any ecosystem worldwide and make a difference. We view our vessels as floating classrooms and love to share our conservation message and inspire change with our guests on every single tour we operate.

  • Avoid buying farmed salmon products. This industry promotes disease and parasites that can spread to wild salmon populations.
  •  Use sustainable seafood programs like OceanWise or Seafood Watch to make food choices that promote healthy oceans, and eat lower down the foodchain (eg: clams and not salmon) to reduce your impact.
  • Be mindful of what you put down the drain and use biodegradable products. All drains eventually lead to the ocean and these contaminants build up in predators like killer whales are can have serious implications on their health.
  • Cut down on your use of plastics. On our current pace, it is estimated that by the year 2050 the weight of plastic in the ocean will outweigh the weight of fish! Say no to single plastics such as bags, water bottles, containers, and straws.
  • Petition to stop whaling in Japan, Norway and Iceland (where over 1000 whales a year are killed for commercial hunting in Iceland, including fin whales).
  • Support the International Whaling Commission’s ban on Japan’s “scientific” whaling.
  • Speak out and oppose cetacean captivity around the world.
  • Removing  The Snake River dams is not only salmon friendly; it also helps increase fish food supply for Southern Resident Killer Whales in the Pacific Northwest.

Our mantra is “People protect what they love and love what they understand” so we are here to help make that happen. Ocean EcoVentures donates $2 from every passenger’s fare directly into whale and wildlife conservation efforts. We also support local researchers to help their conservation and research efforts. The vessels we operate have the quietest sound footprint in the industry for the whales and marine mammals we view.
