Choosing to adopt a sustainable tourism ethic does not mean no longer taking holidays in exotic and fascinating destinations. But choosing to leave aims to minimise the impact of tourism on the environment. Travel is good for yourself and is also a way to support countries and populations that live on tourism.
The eco-sustainable trips organized by Your Boat Holiday have as their main objective to put the tourist in contact with local populations. Have first-level cultural mediators makes every holiday a little more authentic and respectful of the place.
The first thing to choose is of course what kind of boat to rent for a holiday of eco-sustainability. Finally also boat trips can be considered means of transport based on renewable energy,clean energy, which in no way can affect the well-being and serenity of marine environments.
Also in the category of small, but useful, precautions also the choice of sunscreen can make a difference and have serious repercussions on the marine environment. In fact, once the cream is put, it comes directly into contact with the water when we dive to take a swim.
Many creams contain substances such asoxy benzone, highly harmful to the ocean, and is incredibly harmful to coral. Protect you and your children from the sun’ s rays, in the boat you need a lot of cream but remember, your gesture can change the fate of many marine species and beyond.
If you love boat trips you can make sailing a nature-respectful experience, and feel closer to the sea. There is no better way to navigate than to do so in the awareness of the fragility of marine ecosystems.
Water is a good thing, if not the most precious asset, it must not only be preserved from pollutants, it must not be wasted precisely because it is precious. Also keep in mind that on many islands water is not always available. When it hasn’t rained for some time, it’s not a foregone conclusion to find fresh water. Having respectful attitudes is a necessary gesture.
We should all avoid single-use plastic and recycle as much as possible. If you have decided to rent a boat for your holiday and reach some fabulous island, remember that most of the time on these islands there are no recycling systems or incinerators, so all the waste produced will inevitably end up at sea. So when bought you make conscious choices, small details make a difference.
Those around you observe you and could learn a lot from your gestures, be an example even for the little ones. Small things that if done by everyone can change the fate of each of us.
One of the principles on which sustainability is based is not only inherent in the environment but also in the population. We are sure that by visiting some locations, far from our way of thinking, some things will turn out to be ‘different’. We advise you to let yourself be conquered even by those small diversity, the result of unpackaged tourism. Our on-board skippers will give you some tips to live as much as possible in tune with the locals to let you breathe the true essence of that population.
It is important to emphasize that ecological does not mean spartan, today you can organize a luxury holiday respecting our planet. Choose to renting a sailboat for your holidays means taking a relaxing break, without burdening our fragile planet, getting on your toes in nature without damaging it.
