Responsible tourism: Whale watching catamaran holiday, Mexico

Environment

Environment
Adhering strictly to the Mexican or National park regulations, we only do respectful Whale Watching with small groups and have set our own standards for ecological whale watching even higher than legally obliged to. The skippers are specialized and educated in whale watching and to avoid stress for the mammals, we behave like guests on the ocean. The animals decide if they want close contact to the boat. We only choose small boat, carrying a maximum of 10 passengers and always are a guide, naturalist or we ourselves on board.

All tours (boat and island) are guided personally by our team providing our guests with interesting and useful information. On this trip a local sailor is hired.

We provide plenty of information about cetaceans. Our guide is giving talks on lectures on the different whale species we meet and cetaceans in general. We focus on the part to apply the knowing in everybody’s daily life – to be part of the solution.

We only book guests for at least 14 nights on destinations with more than 3500 km distance so that the long flight is related to the duration of the different journeys we offer.

On this trip we offer vegetarian food and try to avoid producing garbage e.g. we do not use small plastic water bottles. We encourage our guests on all journeys to bring biological degradable shampoo etc.

At our headquarter in Europe we offer weekly information meetings and varying lectures as well as a permanent exhibition in our information center to share our knowledge on cetaceans and their habitat, answer questions and show that encounters of humans and cetaceans can happen with consideration and respect. We support as well the nonprofit association M.E.E.R. e.V. With these measures we enhance the knowledge and awareness of our guests towards the enchanting cetaceans and their endangered habitat and give useful tips on how to contribute to preserve these treasures!

We encourage our guests to book an additional OCEANIC Fair module which they can choose:

Since 1995 the German NGO M.E.E.R.e.V. in co-operation with us is researching the marine mammals off La Gomera/Canary Islands. With your taken adoption you can make sure that this research will continue. This NGO - of which everyone at our tour company is a member – is also investigating the complex problems revolving around fast ferries on the Canary Islands and worldwide. With the adoption you will receive a welcome letter with a photo of your favorite dolphin or whale species.

The NGO Pro Wildlife based in Munich provides valuable project work for the marine mammals and the sea and is consequently lobbying their conservation. The department for whales and dolphins works on topics such as whaling, the toxic loads of heavy metals in marine mammals and bycatch. Their studies contribute inter alia at the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to keep the ban against international whaling.

Climate protection contribution: For people who would like regarding the environmental impacts of their air travel, a new service has been established: atmosfair. Utilizing an emissions calculator, atmosfair customers can figure out how much greenhouse gas emissions are caused by their individual flights. With your donation you enable atmosfair to run projects in developing countries where these emissions will be saved.
