All guests aboard Ocean Spray travel knowing their carbon emissions are offset through CanopyCo, an Ecuadorian-based organization managed by local and European professionals dedicated to reforesting Ecuador’s native forests for the benefit of the climate, the local community and, of course, Ecuador’s phenomenal flora and fauna. Ocean Spray's entire operation has been included in the offsets, from the fuel used by the engines on board the catamaran to the bus rides its staff take to work. Aboard Ocean Spray, you can rest assured that from the moment you arrive in the Galapagos Islands to the moment you leave, the impact of your carbon footprint will be a net zero.
