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.
Reducing waste is an extremely important factor in traveling responsibly, and it something we endeavour to impart on all of our trips. Though there are waste issues across the world, we are aware that the islands of Indonesia face major issues with rubbish, and we encourage our travelers to do their part to help this.
On our trips all travelers are given a locally made fabric tote bag to take with them wherever they go, so they do not need to use any plastic bags on offer whenever good are purchased from stores and markets. All travel on this itinerary which is completed by private vehicle includes a large tank of drinking water. Travelers are encouraged to bring their own re-usable water bottle so that they can re-fill it from this tank. This reduces the number of single-use plastic water bottles disposed of by our travelers.
Our trip leaders are also encouraged to have travelers come together and collect rubbish on the islands they visit while snorkelling and exploring by boat. This helps reduce the shocking amount of plastic waste seen in the beautiful Indonesian islands, as well as encouraging environmentally mindful thinking from our travelers which they will hopefully keep in mind on future travels.
PeopleFriends and Neighbours
It is deeply ingrained in us to support local, and this trip is designed to ensure that we support the local people of the islands of Indonesia, and sway away from giving business to large corporations. All accommodation in this trip is with run and managed by local people, we do not visit any large restaurants and endeavour to always support local businesses, we do our shopping from local markets, and we take our travelers to local artisans rather than large scale tourist shopping areas.
This ensures that we are spreading the income to where is it most needed and are supporting business that are run by Indonesian people, not outside influences.
Traveling with Respect
It is extremely important to us to respect the local culture and educate our travelers on the Indonesian people while with us. On arrival to this trip our Trip Leader hands out language cards to teach our travelers the important local phrases. Our Trip Leaders spend much time education the travelers on the local customs, beliefs, religion, and expectations of the people, so that we can always have a good relationship between our travelers and the local people. In this trip we visit and interact with people from a variety of religions and backgrounds, and our Trip Leaders advise how to be respectful and courteous, and how to dress and act to show deference.
