Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Desert island survival adventure, Panama


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. An amount incomparable to a traditional stay in a hotel.

We take the time to ensure the pristine environments we work in stay 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, their is never any bi-catch.


The archipelago of islands we operate in is yet to have much in the way of established tourism. What accommodation and transport we do use, we take pride in supporting and employing local residents of the islands we work in. We only employ local boat drivers and avoid chain hotels. 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.

The island that our expedition takes places on is an important nesting ground for green and olive ridley turtles. We are working to spreading awareness to the local population on the value of the natural world, not just for aesthetics but for their own tourism.

We have a great relationship in place with the local communities we work with and we ask all of our guests to show the upmost care to ensure this relationship is maintained.
