Environment & Ethics

OK let’s get this straight from the start, Seacoast Safaris is a privately-owned commercial business and in order to continue trading needs to be profitable. All that said we do genuinely care about the environment, people and creatures that live on this planet. We are continuously working to lessen our impact on the environment we rely on for our livelihood, whilst channelling some of the income from our business back into projects supporting those who aren’t as fortunate as ourselves.

Since its formation Seacoast Safaris business has been expanding and increasing the number of vessels and staff year on year. Throughout this growth Seacoast Safaris have continuously worked to improve its green credentials, here are some of the ways we have been working towards doing this.

  • Use of HVO fuel
  • Carbon offsetting
  • Local suppliers and contractors in the construction and maintenance of all our vessel
  • New low emission engines on all our boats
  • Solar powered booking kiosk
  • Reducing the use of plastics throughout the company
  • Online booking systems reducing paper and ink consumption

From the start of the 2021 season all our larger passenger boats ran on HVO fuel, a replacement for diesel. HVO is an advanced renewable diesel fuel that is derived from 100% renewable waste streams and reduces CO2 emissions by up to 90%. All the remaining CO2 generated through our boat trip operations has previously been offset through ClimateCare. We believe that at the time of writing we are the 'Greenest' boat operator in North Wales. To find out more about offsetting please visit www.climatecare.org.

Every year at the end of the season we also like to take some of the profit from the company to support local good causes and charities. It’s our way of putting something back into the local community. The 2022 recipients include:

  • Anglesey Food Bank
  • Holyhead Food Bank
  • Arfon Food Bank
  • Llanfaes Guides
  • De Mon Explorers
