“Eagle Wing is not your typical whale watching company. What they have done to support our local community and ecology is far beyond what I have seen in this sector.  They are truly leading change through their passion and commitment to the environment.“ – Jill Doucette – Founder, Synergy Enterprises

100% Carbon Neutral

Being Carbon Neutral means taking responsibility for the impact of our business on the environment.

MEASURE: First, we measure our carbon footprint by converting all of our activities such as electricity consumption, fuel use, waste and staff commuting to tonnes of CO2 equivalent.

REDUCE: We then work to reduce those emissions wherever possible – by optimizing the fuel efficiency of our boats, riding our bikes to work, purchasing local, using less energy and keeping waste out of the landfills.

OFFSET: Finally, we ‘neutralize’ the remaining emissions by purchasing verified Carbon Offsets with the Carbon Fund
