As the very first overnight cruise operator in Halong Bay, sustainable and responsible tourism is always our biggest concern while operating in the Halong region. Sealife Group believes that travel and tourism can improve lives and protect the destinations, especially the environmentally sensitive Halong Bay area.
Nowadays, the booming number of overnight cruises on the bays can lead to environmental damage, affecting local communities. With this in mind, the Sealife Group has been working hard to protect the environment and improve the local communities from the smallest actions to the biggest of projects. Mr. Bui Duc Long is the Founder of Sealife Group and also a local Halong resident. He always personally trains his employees to protect Halong Bay and raises their awareness of responsible tourism. The Sealife Group has maintained a strong relationship with all major stakeholders to conserve the environment, whilst sustaining the well-being of the local people. The Sealife Group has been an active member of IUCN, created to protect of the Cat Ba – Halong Bay region. Furthermore, the Sealife Group set up a fund, “Sealife Foundation” to protect the environment, help the community and develop the local economy. This is divided into 3 parts: “Sealife Eco” , “Sealife Community” and “Sealife Opportunity”
- Sealife Eco:The Sealife Group would like to help maintain our beautiful green planet, thus we reduce our environmental footprint by using recyclable glass bottles rather than using plastic bottles. In this way, guests will always have access to fresh drinking water without the endless use of plastic. Garbage is always classified into two types – inorganic and organic. In addition to this, the Sealife Group is part of a campaign to protect the environment. An example of this is the mangrove planting project in Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba World Reserve. Moreover, with so many guests choosing our Sealife Group, we further raise awareness of protecting this stunning environmental destination. The Sealife Group are so careful to manage the delicate eco-system while sharing this wonderful cruise destination with the world.
- Sealife Community: The Sealife Group maintains a wonderful relationship with the local people. Each and every one of our cruises use the fresh produce from the local communities. This promotes the local economy as well as providing our guests with the freshest and cleanest produce. Last year, The Sealife Group was proud to be one of the main charitable organizations to help the students at Ban Luoc Primary school, Hoang Su Phi District, Ha Giang Province with a total of 7290 meals provided for these students in just 9 months! The Sealife Group always hope to help as many as possible to strengthen the local community. We are also working hard to improve the lives of all Vietnamese people. You can trust Sealife cruises to take care of the Halong Bay community.
- Sealife Opportunity: The Sealife Group also create big opportunities for all local residents to work as Sealife staff and encourage them to perform their best. The Sealife Group strives to support every single staff member to build a strong and tight knit group.
