What you can do
Choose an operator with a responsible tourism policy. Ask about their methods of disposing of trash and wastewater, and whether they invest in any local clean up initiatives. Find out if the staff are local – many of the fishing communities around the bay are no longer able to fish – as the sealife is dying, and the waters polluted – so employment in tourism is a way of sustaining their floating communities.
Don’t just stay on your ship. Find a tour which visits local communities, and which allows you the chance to interact with the people and spend money by buying refreshments or crafts.
If your boat crew or guides throw litter into the bay, report this to your operator and shout about it on review sites and social media. The word will spread that tourists demand responsible practices, and more will begin to follow suit.
Take a two-night cruise rather than one night – this allows you to sail further and to reach some of the more pristine bays and islands, beyond the pollution and litter. But remember – once there, you are responsible for keeping it this way. Do not travel until check out www.blueswimmeradventures.com
