Celine - Sept 2022

I was lucky enough to spend a magical week aboard a catamaran in September hosted by Vic. 

It was everything I hoped it would be….. a time for healing, spectacular scenery, great people and amazing healthy food. 

Thank you to Vic for providing such a beautiful experience that I will treasure forever. 


Wendy 2022

Wow. I had such a wonderful week onboard with Vic! Exactly what I needed to reboot myself. They provided the perfect environment with sharing the sea, the land and the extra that you can’t quite explain. Just magical. 

Would do it again in a heartbeat .

My trip with you has inspired me to be amongst the ocean and warm skies. So much shifting right now because of the healing adventure with you. Your love, nurture, vision and presence helped me feel one of my life’s biggest dreams. I will always feel completely blessed to have met you and I have shared that precious time with you.

Rachel 2019

I joined Oceans of Love for a trip of a lifetime to see the Humpback Whales as they migrated through the tranquil waters of Hervey Bay between Fraser Island the mainland in Queensland Australia. Victoria Millar-Wise puts an extraordinary amount of love, care, passion, creativity, time and energy into creating an unforgettable experience!

I can honestly say that the experience was nourishing and inspiring on a soul level. To be so immersed in an oceanic world, surrounded by the ever-changing textures and colours of water and sky, the white sand dunes of Fraser Islands, and the excitement of spotting a dorsal fin on the horizon, a slapping tail, or a humpback breaching completely out of the water, is nothing short of incredible. And then to hear the exquisite whale song in the hull, and when swimming underwater – brings a sense of having had an encounter with the divine.

The catamaran was beautiful and spacious, and the hand picked group were such a pleasure to spend the week with. The food was delicious, generous and well planned – catering for all dietary needs whilst being super healthy and mostly organic. I have such fond memories of the experience, and so I happily recommend gifting yourself this wondrous experience with Oceans of Love!

Heather 2016

In 2016 I had the pleasure of being introduced to the Divine, powerful, compassionate and healing Victoria Millar – Wise. I felt an immediate connection and safety with Victoria and couldn’t resist taking part in the annual Whale tour on the NSW/QLD coast for 6 days. I didn’t have the savings to take part at the time but Victoria just told me to trust and it would come. Well it did and I can honestly say I have never felt so at peace than I did on the tranquil water, listening to the sounds of the whales. We canoed to nearby islands, did sound healings on remote shores and shared the most nutritious and sumptuous meals prepared with love each day. I have never lost the sense of deep peace, strength and healing that I gained from that trip and no matter where I am in the world can still tune into the profound connection. I am deeply thankful for Victoria’s love and Guidance and the special gift that is the whale song. Heather WA
