We believe in efforts to save our planet as well as an initiative to save our oceans. We care about the planet and stand behind the “purity and innocence” represented by the animals and plant life. Sustainable diving tours and eco-tourism, are soon to exist across all of our brands. This ties into all our combined tourism efforts, while respecting the rules of the Marine Reserve Conservation and the Galapagos National Park.
