Here’s some of the things we are doing to help reduce the impact of Snorkel Venture operations
- We buy carbon credits for all tour leader and Snorkel Venture associated flights with Climate Care.
- We give 100 USD per person per completed booking to our charity partners to support the environmental and social work they do. See more HERE.
- We give a sustainability briefing at the beginning of our tours which outline a code of practice in the water (see below).
- We’re committed to small group tours, using partners which share our desire to protect the underwater world.
- We carry a maximum of 750 snorkelers per year.
- We don’t print or distribute any offline promotional material (brochures, leaflets etc).
- We operate as a paperless organisation and switch off computers and office equipment when idle.
- We encourage working from home to reduce local travel.
Here’s some things you can do to help us be a more sustainable company:
- We only allow reef safe sunscreen to be used before snorkeling. See Stream2Sea website for orders.
- We have a strict no touch, no harass policy in the water.
- Pay close attention to your body and fin position in the water over shallow reef.
- Give large pelagic species such as manta, whalesharks and whales plenty of space in the water.
- Limit the use of your camera flash when photographing up-close critters and slow moving marine life.
- Bring a refillable water bottle and refill from resort/liveaboard stations.
- Bring batteries home for recycling, or better still use rechargeable batteries.
- Limit the amount of laundry you do on tour.
- Use biodegradable body and hair wash on tour. See Stream2Sea website for orders.
- Finally please consider buying carbon credits with Climate Care. Calculate here using your Airport Codes.
