Our wildlife eco cruises at Jervis Bay Wild offer a number of benefits for our guests.
Exciting wildlife sightings.
Wonderful memories made with family and friends.
Glimpses of beautiful scenery.
But what you may not realise is that there is an additional benefit to joining us on the waters of the bay. Being on the water does great things for your overall health and wellbeing. Let’s take a look at what some of those amazing outcomes are.
It doesn’t take scientific research to prove that simply being on or near the ocean can reduce your stress level. The gentle sound of waves lapping against the side of a boat, the cry of the gulls, the fresh ocean spray: the sounds, sights, and sensations of the ocean are immensely soothing. Joining us for a whale watching tour or eco cruise means you’ll be heading home with a sense of rejuvenation and joy—and it’s not just from seeing humpback whales.
Vitamin D and Healing Salt Water
Throughout history, salt water has been recognised for its remarkable healing properties. Salt water helps to heal cuts, clear away bacteria, and remove impurities. The sun itself also produces an invigorating benefit: Vitamin D. Even being out in the sunshine for a few minutes can help your body to generate this essential vitamin. Vitamin D helps your body in countless ways. A primary purpose is to facilitate the absorption of Calcium, leading to stronger, more durable bones. Vitamin D has also been shown to lower blood pressure and help prevent certain illnesses, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and various cancers.
The sun makes you undeniably happy, too. Sunshine produces not only Vitamin D in the body, but serotonin as well: a chemical which can lift your mood and leave a genuine smile on your face. Onboard a cruise with Jervis Bay Wild, you’re bound to enjoy sunshine aplenty.
The Power of Blue
Another reason being on the ocean is so good for you is its therapeutic blue colour. A recent scientific study of New Zealanders revealed that an increased visibility of of blue space, such as the water of the ocean resulted in lower incidences of psychological distress. If these results are accurate, than the brilliant turquoise hues off the NSW coast should be especially potent. For less worry and more peace of mind, it’s a smart idea to spend more time in the presence of the majestic ocean.
Connecting With Nature
Whether or not there’s science behind this idea is of little importance. There’s no denying that being close to the natural world is good for the human spirit. At Jervis Bay Wild, we believe wholeheartedly in the connections between living things and the earth. It’s one of the reasons we’re a certified ecotourism provider. On a cruise with us, you’ll be engaged with all the benefits that an encounter with nature can bring.
