Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Yacht charter in Thailand, families

Environment

Fundamental to our values is a kindness, respect and care for others. This is mirrored in our respect for the natural world that we encounter on our travels.

We travel by the power of the wind and will only use engine assistance in case of real need. This leaves a much lower environmental footprint than with large cruise ships and we have less impact when we are ashore. Thailand is wanting to promote an approach to tourism that values quality over quantity and we feel positive that we are strongly aligned with this approach.

We source products locally before we sail, preferring to buy product loose where possible to avoid unnecessary packaging. Each participant is asked to join in the preparation of meals and this means we have healthy, freshly produced meals on board. Any packaging is stored and prepared for collection at the end of the trip.

We are partnering with Water Rangers, a Canadian NGO, which provides water quality test kits, allowing us to use them on our sailing trips, uploading the data to open source software which is used to monitor changes in ocean water quality.

We fill containers with water at the marina sufficient for the length of the trip. Any additional water for drinking is purchased in large packs and we ask participants to bring their own refillable containers for drinking water. No plastic drinking straws are allowed and we avoid unnecessary plastic goods like straws, stirrers.

We ask all our clients to treat water as a precious commodity on board, bathrooms are shared and time spent in the shower kept to a minimum. Toilets are hand pumped which reduces the amount of water used.

Non bio-degradable cosmetics are not permitted on board, we ask clients to travel light and pack only essential toiletries for the journey.

We minimise our environmental impact but traveling as a small group, spending more time on our yacht than ashore and we respect local customs and dress appropriately. We try to visit popular places such as Phi Phi Ley outside of peak hours, which also allows us to enjoy them fully. We have time to explore remote areas where we may be alone. We support local areas by paying mooring fees and respecting the environment and wildlife. We support local cultural attractions, especially those which are run by local people and avoid any performing animal events.

By visiting remote and uninhabited bays, we want to show people the beauty of our planet. We want people to be inspired to stay out in the nature and therefore learn to appreciate and respect it. Once participants snorkel every day and see the clarity of the water and rubbish on the sea bottom, once participants sail and feel the wind, once participants hike and watch sunsets together and see the beauty of the surrounding area, once participants see the clear night sky with thousands of stars, once participants do all these for a week, every day, they learn that our world is really unique and needs preservation.

Community

People joining our trips tend to stay in touch and be a part of our community. Groups of friends form inter-cultural relations as well, friendships last over borders and time. We are becoming a little community gathered around a hobby and world view.

We believe that the sailing is a very effective way of building confidence and team working skills which strengthens every individual. The structure of the vacation allows solo travelers to join at no supplemental cost. A mix of solos, couples and small groups sets the basis for an enjoyable vacation, where we learn from and help each other during the week.

We tread lightly in the places we visit and make a priority to support attractions that directly benefit local people. We avoid international and chain type establishments. We have especially made great links with family run restaurants over several years, they create a great atmosphere for our clients and we know that every penny will go to local people.

We like to talk about local cultures and teach the participants what we know about local ways of living. We try to be very realistic and not idealise islanders life style. Despite that participants of our trips tend to be inspired to change their habits, slow down and socialize more in their lives.

We want to educate people about power of their money and tell them where to shop for the money to go to the locals in the highest possible amount. We try to educate them about importance of locally sourced produce, re-cycling practices, environmental footprint and marine life preservation.

Participants of our trips tend to say that our trips are eye-opening and life changing for them at very many different levels.
