Many of our partner tour operators and organizations are Florida Society for Ethical Ecotourism (FL SEE) certified. In fact, the Sarasota-Manatee area has more certified eco-destinations and guides than any other region of Florida AND we have the only two Platinum certified guides in the State!
FL SEE is a statewide certification program that encourages an awareness and stewardship of Florida's natural and cultural heritage by:
- Endorsing compliance with federal, state, and local laws regarding the protection of natural resources and customer safety.
- Providing environmental education and awareness which encourage behaviors that contribute to the sustainability of Florida's natural ecosystems and resources.
- Promoting professionalism and integrity within the ecotourism industry by providing and maintaining a certification/recognition program for ecotour providers.
Thank you to our partners for attaining FL SEE certification and encouraging environmental stewardship in everything you do!
