Caring for our environment

We take the privilege of working on the spit seriously and work hard to ensure this delicate environment is well preserved and protected. We work with the Department of Conservation to trap rats, stoats and possums, and monitor other pest-eradication efforts. We also join with local schools and groups on annual beach clean-ups and ensure all our rubbish is packed out with every tour.

We maintain our vehicles to a high standard to ensure pollution and environmental impact are minimised and we work to protect the habitat for all the wildlife and vegetation in the area. We also ensure our guests only interact with areas of the spit that are robust enough to withstand their presence.

We are one of the founding members of the Nelson Sustainable Tourism Charter and are committed to protecting this beautiful ecosystem.
