Environmental Impact

We're sharing information about our environmental strategy and impact. Here's the status of our environmental plan:

Partially-integrated environmental impact plan in use

Travelling with an eco-friendly and responsible travel company such as Majestic Whale Encounters can ensure positive changes on animal welfare, social and community welfare and sustainable development... amongst other environmental advantages.

At Majestic Whale Encounters, our mission is to protect the environment and all the beautiful creatures in our world. We want to convey our message to as many people as possible so that they may also find the ability to connect to these amazing animals.
Responsible Whale Watching and swimming means that we as tour operators have a goal to respect, protect and conserve the Whales, Dolphins and marine environment.
“Maximum experience and observation with Minimum impact”
All of our staff and suppliers are trained in this and adhere to these rules and regulations respecting the animals at all times.

Social Impact Strategy

We have a strategy in place for having a positive impact on our community.

We have a community contribution project which we are very passionate about and it is a part of each tour that Majestic offers.
There is more to travel than just experiencing nature in all its glory. Many of these amazing destinations are located in some of the world's poorest countries and eco tourism helps these countries in their efforts to save and preserve their land and oceans through organisations that aim to save our planet. Going on a trip to some of the world's most remote and untouched corners puts money into the local economy and helps preserve these pristine landscapes. Adventure travelers the world over are needed to support these initiatives with their tourism dollars.
