As a responsible tour operator, we are committed to sustainable and eco-conscious travel experiences. This morning, we’ll take you out on the 1770 LARC, where we actively participate in cleaning up litter and debris from coastal areas. This not only helps protect precious marine ecosystems and wildlife but also promotes public health by removing harmful pollutants from our environment. Moreover, our efforts aim to raise awareness about the critical importance of preserving our oceans. Following our morning conservation activities, we’ll gather at Agnes Water Tavern for a satisfying meal, supporting local businesses that share our commitment to responsible tourism. Afterward, you’ll have some free time in the afternoon to explore and enjoy the beautiful surroundings at your leisure.
