More than a boat charter company, the Portland Roads team live and breathe sustainability and encourage their guests to think deeper about environmental issues and First Nation People. The team is working hard to normalise sustainable change in the hope others will follow.

Their charter boats are equipped with fully self-sufficient solar power systems, smart charging, saltwater flushing and cleaning solutions, 100% non-toxic cleaning materials and regularly utilise biofuel sources.

It is their mission to tell the stories of Traditional Owners and the team share unique associations with Proserpine Indigenous Reference Group, the Black Coffee movement and relationships with local First Nations Elders who have provided permission for the company to operate on the waters of the Whitsundays.

Keep up the amazing work, Portland Roads – Sailing the Whitsundays and welcome to the Ecotourism Australia community!
