Sea Quest is a subtenant and does not have a too much of a say in the lighting around the premises. That said, we will be working with our landlord on improving the area surrounding our building and will include this in the conversation.
Again, Sea Quest is a subtenant, but as we operate in an incredibly culturally significant area, this is a consideration of ours as well as the landlords.
A great deal of this does not apply to us, but Sea Quest does sell and recommend eco-friendly sunscreen which is directly available at check in.
We avoid areas where people utilize the shoreline, and use 4 stroke engines which are regularly maintained. Additionally, we drift along side our guests and use the engines to reposition only when necessary.
This is something we are very excited about expanding on- materials available to the guests, implementing audio/video tools in our office space (our lease is up for renewal and this is something we are working into it), etc. We think the potential to expose and educate is endless and that the implementation of these tools serves to protect the resource and in turn the future of our business.
Whenever possible, we cut waste. This pertains to the food we serve, to the products we sell, and the equipment/supplies we use. We recycle virtually everything. One area in which we stand to improve is the fact that water bottles are given to the guests.
These are each recycled, but we are in the process of trying to identify a better system. As a matter of fact, we have a company wide program with a $100 cash prize for the employee that presents the water bottle solution.
We currently do not utilize vehicles for the company.
