Environment & Ethics

Our company values: Community, Wildlife & the Environment.

Here at Seacoast Safaris we are proud to be one of the Greenest Boat Operators in the UK. We care about the wildlife that we take you out to see and we want the way we run our business to reflect that! Our core company values are at the heart of everything we do and our ethical and environmental concerns sit right alongside profit in our list of priorities! 

So how do we do it? We provide sustainable, green and ethically sound boat trips by taking the company’s profit and investing it in things like Carbon Offsetting, renewal fuels and energies, and sustainable, recycled products. Every year we focus our efforts (and green budget) on something new; a previous project involved running our passenger boats on HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil), a renewable diesel fuel derived from 100% renewable waste streams that reduced our CO2 emissions by up to 90%! Just recently we joined Surfers Against Sewage’s Ocean Network, donating to projects that help keep our waterways clean; find out more here > The Ocean Network

As a company we are proudly WISE accredited. The WISE scheme is about watching wildlife safely and responsibly. The training that they provide aims to promote responsible wildlife-watching, through training and raising awareness and we think this is really important.

And that’s not all! Not only are we continuously working to lessen our impact on the environment we also invest in our local community. Every year at Christmas we take a chunk of our profits and donate it to projects supporting those who aren’t as fortunate as ourselves. The organisations have ranged from food banks, to scout and guide groups, charities and even our local nursery! We also work hard to secure local jobs; all our boat maintenance and boat building is done using local contractors. We support our local lifeboat station too, RNLI Beaumaris, offering free places for the volunteers on our Powerboat Level 2 courses at our RYA training school. People matter to us. 

Our team are also pretty special...We have Marine Biologists, divers and a Nautical Scientist on the crew. Most of our staff are on the lifeboat at RNLI Beaumaris and others volunteer their time for conservation groups including North Wales Seal Research Organisation, British Divers Marine Life Rescue ,RSPB and North Wales Wildlfe Trust . What they don't know about the sea and it's inhabitants isn't worth knowing!

We hope you'll agree we're a boat company with a bit of a difference and we're proud to stand out from the crowd!

Absolutely loved our boat trip today, the staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and made the trip better, I really appreciate the way that he made sure everyone on the boat had the opportunity to see everything, I'd 100% go again.
