Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Sicily and Aeolian Islands small ship cruise

Environment

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.

By 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.

Community

Almost everything about this cruise is local. The vessel is locally owned and operated, the food we eat is bought and purchased locally, and we make use of local restaurants in most destinations. By visiting some of the smaller islands that get few visitors 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.

Our guests are free to eat ashore on most evenings, injecting a little income into the small island communities.

You also have the option to employ a local guide to take you for a hike on Stromboli.
