…we aim at having a maximum positive impact:
We want our trips to mean something positive in the long run for our customers, the animals we encounter and the people we meet and work with. Moreover, we want our impact to go even further - we want your visit to mean something to those who do not have the privilege and otherwise would never have the opportunity to gain such transformative ocean experiences...
I AM WATER Ocean Travel’s primary mission is to generate funds to support the outreach work of
I AM WATER Ocean Conservation where we work with underprivileged kids from coastal communities around the world.
…we are passionate about our oceans and are driven by the desire to conserve them:
We yearn for salty sea days and the stillness of the deep ocean, and we’re passionate about sharing that with others. However, we want to make sure that - while picking out the most awesome experiences that this big blue planet has to offer - our presence has the lightest of footprints on the ecosystems we visit.
We’re passionate about being proactive when it comes to respecting and protecting the creatures of the sea. Thus, when we’re on a trip, the animal's wellbeing is – apart from your safety – our top priority at any time. Should we get the impression that our presence (in and out of water) stresses or disturbs the animal, we will distance ourselves instantly even if this might limit our interaction.
…we seek adventure and create once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
We believe in transformative ocean experiences: facilitating inspirational, educational animal encounters that will empower you to go home and effect change in your lives and communities.
We are proud to partner with POSITIVE LUXURY who awards the interactive Butterfly Mark to brands in recognition of their commitment to social and environmental sustainability.
