As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetBy using a small ship we can greatly reduce the distance travelled as we can visit the small islands that are close together. We minimize waste on board and dispose of the little we generate in an approved and appropriate manner.
The small size of these cruise vessels and the small passenger numbers ensures that any detrimental social and environmental impacts are minimised whilst allowing the passengers to visit smaller communities that donít usually benefit from this form of tourism. This also enables small communities to host tourists without the need for building hotels and other infrastructure that may be required.
Sail power has very obvious ecological benefits, vastly reducing the carbon used in any form of travel as well as reducing emissions. All the crews are experienced sailors and love to sail if possible. Although we cannot use the sails all the time and in all conditions, they do provide a welcome benefit.
PeopleAlmost everything about this cruise is local. The vessel is locally owned and operated, the food we eat is bought and purchased locally. Our gulet has a culinary Chef who checks the daily the fresh ingredients in the market and local shops. He is an expert cook and knows the local wines and tailors the wines and food together with each meal. By visiting some of the smaller islands that get few visitors and purchasing our food from them we are helping to sustain the island communities and their way of life.
We will endeavour to maximise the benefits of tourism and to minimise or eradicate any downside, socially, environmentally & economically.
We will encourage our passengers to learn and understand as much as possible about the local traditions, language and way of life to enable them to appreciate the reality of life in this part of the world. The cruise manager will ask any questions about the region, and will keep all of the passengers updated, not just with the day to day itinerary, but with in depth information about the history and way of life of the local communities.
