What’s an Eco Cruise?
The Boat Company: A New Standard of Sustainable Tourism – The Alaskan Eco-cruise
There’s a new school of thought in the world of Alaskan cruises. It goes by several names, including eco-cruise, sustainable tourism or green travel. Sustainable eco tourism means traveling to a location – usually to appreciate its natural beauty – and striving to impact that environment as little as possible. Sustainable tourism also seeks to educate the traveler about the area’s natural resources such as land, waterways and wildlife. Ideally, eco tourism helps spread a message of responsible environmental stewardship and conservation.
Investigate Your Alaskan Cruise Options
Today, more and more people are choosing to travel green. And when they think natural beauty and abundant wildlife, they often think of an Alaskan cruise. Alaskan cruises have been popular for decades, but the image of a giant, 3000-passenger cruise ship – while luxurious – hardly connotes environmental sensitivity. There are also a number of small Alaskan charters for hire. These certainly make a smaller environmental impact, but their services and amenities can also be quite modest.
The Boat Company: Sustainable – and Luxurious – Alaskan Eco-cruises
For over 30 years, The Boat Company has been providing responsible, sustainable Alaskan eco-cruises – since before they had a name for it!
