WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH!

We raise awareness of environmental issues amongst passengers, crew and the communities in the areas we explore. With the help of our guests we have collected, removed and recycled a significant amount of rubbish, much of which is plastic that can injure wildlife and end up in the food chain.
