Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
As sea kayakers we are very aware of the plastics waste issue in the ocean. During our trip, we recommend that participants carry a 5 litre water bladder and a water container on the kayak deck and use tap water instead of bottled water in single use plastic packaging. This alone will stop the use of between 120 and 150 plastic bottles in the course of the week. Additionally, during our information workshop we discuss rubbish and human waste management whilst wild camping. Our information is geared to make sure we leave as little trace as possible and opt of plastic free methods of keeping ourselves clean. Participants will receive the code of conduct with further information on these points.

During our trip we will get a mini van from a small association of taxi drivers to move us as a group to and from the airport and to our launch point. We keep travel by road to a minimum and choose our final get out point carefully to minimise travel and pollution.

Kayaking Is a low impact sport on the environment.

Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We make it our business to help develop local communities and support people in their effort to gain the skills to work locally so they can remain in the islands and obtain a fair wage, better job opportunities or set up businesses. We have invited a young Greek trainee to our trip to Crete as he plans to work as a kayak guide and needs to develop skills and qualifications. He will be joining our trip to learn the ropes and train under Owen's guidance.. He will also have the opportunity to undergo assessment and if successful, he will gain British Canoeing qualifications. His trip is sponsored both by us nd his future employer.

During our stay we will be using local providers for our equipment, we will do most of our shopping in a small village supermarket and will visit family run tavernas to ensure that our visit brings benefits to the local communities.
