Responsible Travel

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.


Most tourists to the beautiful Cape Verde Archipelago stay (and often donít leave) in some large resorts in a few restricted locations, so by enabling our passengers to visit some different areas of the Cape Verde Archipelago without putting any strain on local amenities, we are spreading the financial benefits and the load of our visit to these remote islands.
Our vessel has an on board waste treatment system to avoid polluting the sea with waste. Furthermore, the smaller size of these cruise vessels and the smaller 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.
Using small ships as boutique hotels can alleviate the need and the environmental impact of building new hotels and infrastructure just for the peak season by providing extra beds at the time and place when they are required most.


We encourage all our passengers to engage with the local community on a social and economic level to ensure that this tourism has a benefit to both the visitors and the hosts. This can be a small thing such as buying a local cake from a small bakery, trying some fresh fruit at a street stall or having a haircut and shave in a local barbers - excellent value .

The shipís managers will buy as much of their produce as possible from local communities, and will also encourage our passengers to spend money in the communities that we visit. By trying some local fruit juice instead of a well known American brand of soft drink, you will support the economy, it will be better for you and who knows, you might find you enjoy it more too. Almost all of the food on board is bought from local communities; fruit vegetables, plenty of fish, 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.

We will endeavour to maximise the benefits of tourism and to minimise or eradicate any downside, socially, environmentally & economically.

We will encourage our passengers to learn and understand as much as possible about the local traditions and way of life to enable them to appreciate the reality of life of the islands.

We also encourage our passengers to learn a little Portuguese, the language of Cape Verde, to enable a little communication while ashore.
