A few of those do not apply to our tours that we offer. However we do supply environmentally friendly reef safe sunscreen on the boat free of charge and recommend guests use it....also reminding them at check in as well as on our website.
We also sell sun shirts in our store and supply our crew with them as well. We do not have a waste pump station in Keauhou Bay but we do pump our heads the Coast Guard Regulation of 3 miles or more off shore.
The boat engines are deeply insulates for sound isolation. We also use a mooring when one is available or anchor in sand and shut off the engine when able to.
Our engines are inboard but they are maintained regularly in our Captain's logbook. Our employee handbook recommends purchased equipment to be as energy efficient as possible. We also prohibit smoking on our vessel and work with Tami at Coalition for Tobacco Free Hawaii to supply signage at our store as well.
Our manta brochures provide educational material on Manta Rays. We also have Coral Reef Alliance Flip charts in the store and on the boat as educational material for guests to read.
We also have a water filtration system on the boat. We contribute to Keauhou Bay Beach Cleanup efforts to help keep the historical sites clean and unspoiled.
We do supply energy/ water efficient appliances as well as air conditioning unit auto controls and turned off at night. Our shopping center just installed solar panels throughout the shopping center as well.
Our staff only drives 3 miles round trip per tour. We don't put many miles on our vehicles during the year being so close to the bay and always try to keep the vehicles fully fueled for each tour.
