TropicBird Ecotours is an Ethical Ecotour Provider and member of the Florida Society for Ethical Ecotourism (SEE) and adheres to its principles, including:

  • Minimizing impact
  • Leaving no trace
  • Respecting wildlife and practising passive observation
  • Providing the highest quality experience and interpretive services for our guests
  • Encouraging behaviors that contribute to the sustainability of Florida’s natural ecosystems and resources
  • Providing support for local conservation through organisations like the Friends of Rookery Bay, Friends of Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Nature Conservancy of South West Florida

Sailing is an activity that readily aligns itself with these principles.
