Sustainable yachting tips
If you’re looking to explore our beautiful planet, a yacht charter is a great place to start. Explore coral reefs with your snorkel, discover hidden bays and islands and generally enjoy the view of nature. Remember, that sailing motto: 'Take only photos, leave only wake' (OK, so we paraphrased). To be a responsible sailor, remember:
Don’t disturb coral or sealife
Take your trash home (and don’t throw anything in the sea)
Respect the locals and their customs wherever you go
