As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs a global tour operator, we are committed to operating every one of our trips in a way that respects and benefits local people, their culture and economy, while minimising our impact on the natural environment.
On this small group sailing adventure, we use the power of the wind to sail the boat as much as possible which means that we have less impact on the environment than if traveling by other modes of transport. When on land, you will hike or walk and we don’t use any motorised transport on this trip.
We travel with a maximum of eight passengers on board a yacht of between 44ft and 51ft, but we’ll use a smaller boat if the group is smaller. Bathrooms are shared and although there is hot water, we encourage passengers to use it carefully. Toilets are usually operated by hand-pumps and we have recycling arrange Bathrooms are shared and although there is hot water, we encourage passengers to use it carefully.

As a tour company, our responsibilities don’t stop when our tours end. In 2002, we established a charitable foundation so that our passengers and staff could support grassroots community projects around the world. To date, it has raised over £2million for over 75 projects involved with health care, education, human rights, child welfare, sustainable development, and environmental and wildlife protection. We match every donation made by passengers and pay the administration costs, so every penny that is donated goes to a good cause.
PeopleDuring the trip, we shop for local produce for our breakfasts and lunches, which the whole group will prepare and eat together on board the boat. In the evenings, we go onshore to dine at small, often family-run restaurants where you can eat local delicacies. For example, when we visit Procida (the smallest island in the Bay of Naples) we usually dine at one of the unpretentious waterfront tavernas along the marina and encourage passengers to try freshly-caught seafood or local specialities such as spaghetti with sea urchin, so that we are supporting the local economy. In Amalfi, we hike past olive groves and vineyards and in the evening, we can enjoy a wealth of this locally-grown produce at dinner including olives, citrus fruits, and wines.
We travel in small groups and wherever possible we use local transport, stay in locally-owned accommodation or homestays, eat at authentic local restaurants, support traditional artisans and small-scale businesses, and provide opportunities for travelers to interact with local people.
While there are few dress restrictions in Europe we request that our passengers dress modestly if visiting churches or religious sites. For example, if you wish to enter the cathedral of Sant'Andrea or convent of the Cappuccini in Amalfi, or the Abbazia di San Michele Arcangelo, a Benedictine Abbey on the island of Procida, we will ask that you cover your shoulders as a mark of respect and we ask travelers to follow other responsible travel guidelines which we provide on our website and at the start of the trip.
