Ocean Friendly Certification by Ocean Allies
It makes sense for all businesses this close to our gorgeous oceans to do their part in keeping our resources clean!
In February of 2019, we made the decision to get The Tropics Boat Tours Ocean Friendly Certified. With the help of Ocean Allies, a local 501c3 Charity whose goal is to help businesses reduce their impact on the environment, we embarked on the journey towards zero waste.
Our improvements include:
No more plastic water bottles sold on board - drinking water is now available in coolers.
We recycle! You will see blue recycling cans on board, which are emptied daily into the Marina container
No plastic straws available - paper straws are available upon request.
We offer reusable cups (as part of our Drink Packages) AND discounts for using the cup in the future!
We no longer distribute single-use plastic leis after our tours.
Although we are very proud of our accomplishments so far, we know that this is just a start!
