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.
PlanetBy using a small vessel that can access the smallest ports, we restrict our travel to just a few miles per day, unlike larger vessels that have to travel a great deal further between ports thus reducing our emissions greatly.
Sail power has very obvious benefits and we hope to sail under sail power some of the time, though this obviously depends on the prevailing weather conditions.
The small size of these cruise vessels and the small passenger numbers ensures that any detrimental social and environmental impacts are minimised whilst allowing the passengers to visit smaller communities that donít usually benefit from this form of tourism. This also enables small communities to host tourists without the need for building hotels and other infrastructure that may be required.
All our waste is returned to port and disposed of responsibly as we know that the beauty of the environment we work and live in provides us with our income. If we spoil our environment our livelihood would be in jeopardy.
All the food on board is bought locally; fruit, vegetables, plenty of fish, shellfish and other seafood, meat and other staples are all locally grown and produced, and much of it is bought from small retailers or even directly from the grower or fisherman. This has a threefold benefit of reducing food miles, supporting local communities and providing our customers with very fresh food.
PeopleAlthough only a small vessel we provide full time employment for 4 staff on board. The crew, at leat half of whom are usually from the area, know the area where we cruise well as they have been sailing there for several years. In addition by visiting small ports and harbours, and encouraging our guests to eat ashore on most evenings we are supporting local businesses as well as farmers and fishermen, as most of the produce in the restaurants is grown locally.
Our chef on board uses almost entirely fresh local produce, which, apart from providing our guests with healthy and very tasty food, supports local farmers and fishermen in their traditional methods.
We encourage our passengers to learn a few words (or more) of the local language so they can communicate a little with anyone they meet. We also encourage them to try some fresh produce rather than well known huge international brands.
The vessels managers support the Montenegro Red Cross, specifically in their efforts to improve the quality of life and reduce the poverty of the elderly in Montenegro. This is aimed at people 65 or over who are not covered by other forms of assistance; elderly people who are in poor health; elderly people in a state of social need; older people living alone or with someone in need.
