Saltwater runs in Simon Thornalley's blood which shines through in this beautiful video on his business, Saltwater Eco Tours. Guests get to enchant all their senses aboard his 113-year old timber sailing boat called, "Spray of the Coral Coast".

Simon started his business with a start-up loan from IBA. He talks about the trials of COVID and how he's coming out the other side. If you're up in the Sunshine Coast, take a sail with Simon and his crew at to experience the sea and learn about the local Kabi Kabi communities.

This was the last segment in our partnership series with SBS Small Business Secrets which featured amazing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses all month including Deadly Denim, My Dilly Bag, hardyhardy, and Saltwater Eco Tours.
