Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Hawaii small group tour

Environment

We actively discourage our travelers from participating in any activities that exploit wild, domestic or working animals. We believe wild animals should be viewed – without contact or interaction – doing what they do best: living in the wild. This applies to the optional activities of swimming with manta rays in Kailua-Kona and whale watching in Lahaina, as well as to any other encounters with animals on this trip.

During this tour we’ll visit several sites of natural beauty, including hiking in Waimea Canyon, canoeing along the Wailua River and exploring Na Pali Coast State Park. Each time our travelers will be advised to stick to the signposted trails to minimise their impact on these fragile environments. We also see it as our responsibility to ask all travelers to take any rubbish with them and ensure no litter is left behind. On a trip to the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum, our passengers will have the opportunity to learn more about the history of volcanology and thereby understand how important it is to protect these unique areas.

Community

Due to our small group sizes, a maximum of 13 people on this particular tour, it’s possible for us to keep our impact on the local environment and community to a minimum. The size of the group also means we’re able to stay in smaller locally-run hotels, which enables us to support the local economy and have a more authentic Hawaiian experience.

This trip includes three domestic flights: Honolulu to Kauai, onto Kailua-Kona and finally onto Maui. These flights allow us to explore the wider reaching regions of Hawaii and means the flow of income from visitors is distributed to a greater audience rather than remaining concentrated on a small handful of tourism providers.

We also eat in local restaurants and encourage travelers to purchase traditional souvenirs from local artisans. Through doing so they’re able to gain an authentic insight into the lives of local people and support their businesses directly.

We also employ Hawaiian guides, who live and breathe our responsible travel philosophy. All travelers will be briefed about what it means to be a responsible traveler in their initial welcome meeting, which takes place on the first day of the tour.

When visiting religious sites like the Mokuaikaua Church, the oldest Christian church in the archipelago, we ask our passengers to dress modestly and respectfully by ensuring their shoulders and knees are covered. Respect and consideration are extremely important when it comes to learning about new cultures. For this reason, we also provide travelers with the opportunity to discover more about the traditional Hawaiian belief system and the kapu (religious laws) that were the basis of that system, when visiting the Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park.
