Responsible Travel Tips: Code Green for Kayakers and Canoeists
Updated: Mar 2
5 tips for kayakers and canoeists to minimise their impact on the environment.
1. Remote beaches and islands are often used by birds, turtles and other species for roosting or nesting. Take care to avoid disturbing wildlife and practice
2. Use biodegradable toilet paper (or burn it) and always use the intertidal zone where the sea can wash the beach clean. Use biodegradable and phosphate-free
shampoo and soap if washing in the sea.
3. Do not collect shells or other natural souvenirs.
4. Abide by all whale watching guidelines. Do not pursue, feed, touch or disturb cetaceans, manatees, dugongs or whale sharks.
5. Pack out all garbage.
