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
The good thing about desert island life is we generate next to no carbon emissions once we are on the island.

For us, time on a desert island is not just about developing survival skills but about taking time out of our busy schedule disconnect from the rat race and become immersed in nature. After their time on the island, we like to think that our clients leave feeling a deeper connection with the natural world and a renewed passion to protect it.

Due to the nature of our expeditions, we have an exceedingly small footprint using next to no electricity, and consuming under 200Ltrs of water. Consumption incomparable to a traditional stay in a french Polynesian hotel, famously steeped in decadence and luxury.

We take very measure to ensure the pristine environments we work in remain that way, only taking what we need to survive and ensuring any rubbish we find during our expeditions is collected.

We only eat fish that are of mature size and of species we know to not be threatened. Due to the fishing techniques we use, there is never any bi-catch.

We never touch local species of shark, ray, turtle or the increasingly vulnerable coconut crab which we recognise as an endangered species in the area.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We work in a various areas that rely heavily on income from tourism. Therefore we only employ local boat drivers and avoid chain hotels where possible.

In Tonga particularly, for use of the island we make a donation directly to the remote island community. These are the people who need it the most and direct giving has been proven to be amongst the best form of charity there is. In addition to this, we buy local produce for the expedition from them. One other element we do is provide medical and teaching supplies to the community. Due to their extremely remote nature, our presence is somewhat of a lifeline to them and they express considerable gratitude for it.

Finally, many of our guests choose to stay on longer adding extra time to spend time in the local community.

We are still small, but as we grow we plan on further developing our support of the local community and implement island conservation initiatives because the world is far richer for untouched island paradises.
