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

At the beginning of each tourist season we organize team-building style clean-up actions where guides and base managers clean up the area which they are about to work in the coming season. While guiding tours, guides also pick up any trash they see along the way and they encourage clients to do the same.

Sailing away to remote destinations, as we do on this trip, we give up on some of the convenience provided in locations with mass tourism. Instead, we focus on sustainability, careful use of resources, and proper disposal of waste:

1. Saving freshwater and producing less waste - There is a freshwater tank in the boat which is regularly maintained and filled with drinking water. We inform our clients that it is not necessary to bring packets of drinking water on board as tap-water is drinkable from all the taps on board. It is enough to have one reusable drinking bottle for refills which eliminates excessive waste in the form of plastic water bottles. The drinking water is also used for dishwashing and showering which makes it important for everyone on board to use it consciously. If not used excessively, one tank should last everyone on board quite comfortably for the duration of the trip.

2. Saving electricity and minimizing CO2 emission and noise pollution - On this tour we aim to sail as much as possible. By using the power of the wind instead of engines we keep CO2 emissions and noise pollution down. However, not using engines results in limited electricity in the boat’s battery which we use for everything from charging our phones and gadgets to cooling fans. Clients on board are advised to use electricity consciously and to turn of cooling fans and unplug appliances when they are charged – especially during the night.

3. Caring for the environment and proper waste disposal – On this tour we visit the Kornati National Park and with each ticket purchase we contribute to the maintenance and conservation of the area and its wildlife. However the park’s rangers can only do so much which is why at the beginning of each tourist season our skippers and guides clean the beaches and bays they plan to visit throughout the season. Our aim is to take clients to the most private and secluded beaches and bays, which means we are usually the first one is there at the beginning of each season. Being the first, we find rubbish that has accumulated throughout the off-season and we clean it up before bringing clients there. Strong winds and storms can bring rubbish onto those beaches again anytime, which means there is a need for regular maintenance throughout the tourist season. Our clients are encouraged to help and they often join in making an activity out of it. Throwing waste of any kind overboard is strictly forbidden and, while on board, we encourage our clients to recycle using separate garbage bins provided - plastic, glass, cans, paper, and organic waste.

People

The first part of the tour we are based in the small town of Skradin - a small community where we nurture the partnerships with the locals. In Skradin we work with a small family owned hotel where our groups make a large portion of total clients throughout the season. In addition to that, every season we rent accommodation for our guides and storage for our outdoor equipment from locals. The second part of the tour we take clients to isolated island communities where local businesses depend on island hoppers like us to provide clients who buy local souvenirs and eat in local restaurants. Our clients also impact these communities by introducing a demand for certain global trends which would otherwise not resonate with the small and often elderly communities on the islands. For example, the demand for locally-grown and overall healthier food, has changed how local businesses approach gastronomy and profit making. More and more hotels and restaurants catering for the demands of tourists now buy food locally and prepare it in ways which are better for the consumer and the environment. This produce less waste and generates more profit for the communities. A similar effect can also be seen with the changing trends in souvenir preferences, with an increasing number of clients choosing to avoid souvenirs made of wildlife elements like coral, seashells and starfish which is certainly a positive trend in terms of wildlife preservation and environmental conservation.
