Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

The Whale shark tour works mostly on providing awareness on the importance of protecting the oceans, corals reefs and wildlife. Especially the whale sharks and other species in the area, such as the manta rays, marine turtles, dolphins, whales, etc.

The tour has a maximum of 10 people. This is to be able to provide personalized attention and awareness on protecting our natural resources.

In this trip we work with local hotels that run a recycle program for the solid waste they produce, they also have a compost management system. This trip has implemented not to use plastic bottles. The trip uses reusable cups for people drinking water on trip.

During the tour we also make sure that we don´t disturb the whale sharks. We have strict rules that touching the whale sharks is not allowed and that our customers have to keep a distance of at least 2 to 3 meters.

People

Our promise to support the local community is to hire as much local guides and drivers for all the tours that we are offering. In case of the whale shark tour we hire local people. There are multiple benefits for this. The first one being that the local people understand the value of conserving the wildlife like the whale sharks. The benefit is that it obviously is positive for the environment but also since this brings job opportunities for them. This is what we promise to do our best to support our community.

Another promise is to contribute to social projects that benefit the community. An example of this is that we support and contribute to the ´One Dollar Shark Conservation project', led by local researcher Rafael de la Parra. He has been researching and working on whale shark conservation for the past 15 years. Every person that enjoys this trip with us is contributing with Rafael and the conservation and the research of these species.
