Environmental and Social Work
We strive to be ecological sensitive and work with business partners that provide conservation work in the Galapagos Islands, Peru, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Nepal and East-Africa.
Through the various conservation efforts and projects, we are able to achieve our goal and at the same time support our claim as a responsible tour operator. We are working with yacht operators who use lead-free paint, biodegradable soaps and detergents, recycle wastes, produce fresh water through desalinization units, use four stroke outboard engines on tenders and filter of black and gray water. The standards also require good living conditions and advanced training for the boat crew and guides.If you like like to help reduce your impact on the environment while you travel and off set your carbon emissions, we recommend the following organization: http://www.nativeenergy.com/
