Dive holiday in Indonesia, Alor and Komodo
Description of Dive holiday in Indonesia, Alor and Komodo
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetAll of our divers and snorkelers enjoying the reefs in the Komodo National Park and Alor Marine Park have conservation tax and marine park fees included. The funds collected contribute to the protection of local wildlife. We also provide in-depth briefings and enforce principles on how to view wildlife above and below the surface in order that we can reduce the impact of our visit as much as possible.
The Komodo Resort has been built sustainably using teak wood that has either been recycled or comes from controlled plantations.
In terms of consumption we aim to limit the amount of plastic and waste products used whilst on tour - refilling bottled water is highly encouraged, we make a local donation of £15 per original bottle returned at the end of each tour (i.e tour members have only used one bottle for the entire trip). We also encourage tour members to limit their usage of shampoos, laundry and cosmetic/cleaning products during the tour.
PeopleAll of our local partners have established mutually strong relationships with the local communities, complying with all local rules and regulations such as a minimum wage requirement and fair trade rules.
Our chosen resorts are actively supporting the local communities that we operate in with participation in local beach cleans. The properties also employ local staff and actively improve the health, education and skill development of the people of the island. These initiatives are paid for with a portion of the profits from the resorts.
We also encourage tour members to 'buy responsibly' at local markets and Warungs (family owned shops). Traveling in small groups enables us to limit our impact in more remote and culturally sensitive regions throughout the tour, particularly in Komodo regions where lifestyle tends to be more primitive. Transfers and connections are also managed by small local operators ensuring an even distribution of funds are directly benefits local communities.
