SUSTAINABILITY

 

Sail TRIM AGAIN & the United Nations Sustainability Goals

 

 

Carbon Footprint, Environmental & Wildlife Sustainability 

 

Charter boats directly impact many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, especially those linked to responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water, and more. That is why we continue to explore and implement new methods of sustainable tourism. We believe we can have a positive impact through our stewardship of the environment, education of our guests and support of historic and environmental preservation now and in the future.

 

We pride ourselves on delivering a guest experience that not only takes into account the joy of being on the water  but also is an educational experience, relating to the area’s history, natural history, wildlife and challenges to sustaining these resources.  While our Sailing experiences, oar and electric tenders leave a minimal carbon footprint our motor yacht tours do. To reduce our carbon footprint we govern the speed of our motor vessel and maintain and tune the motors to be efficient. We find it extremely important to engage our guests with our on-board specialists to understand how we can all play a positive part in preserving the areas we explore. Encouraging our guests to learn about the ecology, environment, wildlife and historic environments we feel is the first step as a provision of hands-on experiences that further amplify the importance of sustainability.

 

GOALS: TO: Reduce carbon footprint through the emphasis on sailing and electric                                  propulsion.
