Sustainable tourism in Squamish bc


Exploring Sustainable Tourism: What Does It Mean?

British Columbia (BC) isn’t just a place on the map; it’s a way of life. The Sea to Sky Corridor, spanning from Squamish to Whistler and encompassing Vancouver in the picturesque Howe Sound Fjord, encapsulates the essence of BC. And there’s no better way to experience its majesty than from above, especially when the journey is as sustainable as the destination.

What is Sustainable Tourism?

Sustainable tourism isn’t merely a catchphrase—it’s an ethos. It’s about ensuring that travel and tourism practices are economically viable and environmentally friendly. But more than that, it’s about creating experiences that respect the local community’s cultural heritage and enhance the host destinations’ well-being. The aim is to make a low impact on the environment and local culture while generating income employment, and conserving local ecosystems. 

At Sea to Sky Air, we live and breathe this ethos.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Our commitment at Sea to Sky Air transcends scenic views. We stand as stewards of BC’s immense natural beauty. By choosing our scenic flights and seaplane tours, you’re treated to an unforgettable visual feast and an educational journey. 

Our knowledgeable pilots wear many hats—not only do they navigate the skies, but they also act as educators. As we traverse the volcanic parks, glide over deep fjords, and hover near glacial peaks, you’ll gain insights into the geological formations, indigenous communities, and the diverse ecosystems they sustain.

Of course, the irony isn’t lost on us that our entire business relies on fossil-fuel-driven aircraft. This drives us to evaluate the net impact of our operations constantly.

Sea to Sky Air’s Climate Action Plan is a testament to our dedication to a sustainable future. Proudly carbon-neutral since 2021, we know that a swift and significant operational revamp is vital to fulfill our vision. Our Climate Action Plan isn’t just a document—it’s a guiding principle influencing our daily operations, strategic decisions, and future planning.

As technological advancements present new opportunities, like commercially viable eco-friendly aircraft, our plan will enable us to incorporate them to aid our emission reduction aspirations. 

Experience BC, the Sustainable Way

BC has more than breathtaking views and stunning landscapes. It’s about the stories, the history, and the culture that bind everything together. Our scenic flight tours provide a unique vantage point to see and understand BC differently.

And the best part? We do all this with a keen focus on minimizing our carbon footprint (in fact, we’ve been carbon neutral since 2021!), supporting local communities, and fostering eco-friendly practices. So, every flight you take with us is a step towards a more sustainable future.
