Proudly supporting our local Community

AWADS is proud to offer charities and community groups the opportunity to book our award-winning Whale & Dolphin Conservation Cruise, as a special fundraising event.

With the entire boat (up to 100 tickets) available at a special charter rate, this is your chance to raise money for your organisation whilst having a lot of fun doing it!


How it works;

  1. Tell us what your raising money for by filling out this contact form.
  2. We will then be in touch to discuss your idea and work out the details.
  3. (If approved) we will set everything up, send you a 'Toolkit' and a booking link.
  4. You then push the offer and booking link out to all your supporters.
  5. We all then go Whale & Dolphin Watching.
  6. We then deduct the agreed operating expenses and send you the balance.
  7. You achieve your fundraising goal!!!!


  • Private charter available for up to 100 people.
  • We offer a discounted charter rate.
  • Fundraising charters are available mornings only (typically 08:00 - 12:30).
  • Not available in our peak summer season (Dec - Feb incl.)
  • Acceptance of the fundraising proposal is at the sole discretion of AWADS.

We wish you the best of luck with your fundraising.


Please note: along with fundraising charters, we are proud to support a number of marine-research and conservation programs as our way of contributing to the community. For this reason, we do not provide donations to individual causes.
