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.
PlanetAs this is a 'cruise' holiday, it Is important to us to ensure we cause no pollution. Our motor yacht for day excursions is specially designed without propellers, instead, Rolls Royce engineers have developed a water jet system which is safe for sea animals, and our guests to swim safely around the boat. We implement a save the waves policy on our yacht which means that simply no one is allowed to throw anything overboard by crew or guests while on a cruise. All the waste such a food waste is kept on board and brought back home on mainland for recycling. There is also the yacht log book for fuel and oil waste which is updated daily on the yacht and controlled on monthly base by the official port harbor master. In order to minimize any negative environmental impact, our Yacht use a extra clean Euro Class fuel with minimum emission set up by newest EURO 4 European standards directives.
In regards to accommodation, our boutique style villas have environmentally responsible practices in place such as water/energy saving initiatives, recycling methods, such as using our own water since it is collected from natural source - rain, therefore we have special filters for making this water drinkable and for guests use as well. Our captains villa has special solar panels on the roof for water heating and heating at winter months as well.
By booking this trip you get to see a whole new perspective of this beautiful part of Croatian Islands by sailing on our Yacht, visiting completely secluded and deserted bays on our itinerary , mostly known only to our local island people. Kayaking and snorkeling on the hidden and best preserved parts of the clearest sea in Europe, guests are given the chance to explore in a ways which are least harmful to the environment.
On our visit to the National Park Mljet island sea Lakes and park of Nature Lastovo Island in the program - the fees that we pay to the National Park contribute to the conservation of that area.
In our office, we minimize printing actions and recycle paper. Most of all, we ensure that negative environmental impacts are drawn to a minimum.
PeopleBy booking this trip you bring much-needed income to the people who are still recovering from the war-torn years, as this was the area severely affected by war, especially Dubrovnik old city, Lastovo and Vis islands that were a military base in Ex Yugoslav Republic.
This trip ensures that the local people benefit as much as possible in the form of jobs (we employ local guides and drivers only) and provision of accommodation (we use our own family-owned Captain's Villa). We also use our own transfer services, buy food from small farms and work on developing responsible waste management by stimulating waste recycle.
By buying local products you are supporting this countries’ economy and helping Croatia to stand on her feet again! We consider it our responsibility to lead efforts to maintain and preserve the integrity of this fledgling sector by petitioning the introduction of tighter controls over the use of the country’s natural resources.
Our boutique villa is our small family run hotel that employs local people and in that way is irreplaceable in the community. Our hosts in the small family restaurant prepare breakfasts , lunches and farewell dinner with our own home grown food and fish from our own pond.
