Blue Flag 2022-2023 Season Cancun Sailing

Blue Flag 2022-2023 Season Cancun Sailing

We were part of the Blue Flag 2022-2023 Ceremony, in which we kept Cancun as the destination with the highest number of Blue Flag vessels worldwide. Read on and find out everything we did that day.

For us it is vital to take care of our most precious natural resource, the sea. That's why we dedicate a large part of our efforts to becoming a sustainable company concerned about conservation and minimizing the footprint we leave behind. And since actions speak louder than words, we let our Blue Flag certification speak for us.

Of the 41 awards, 31 belong to our vessels. For us, it is an honor to be the company that led Mexico to position itself as the country with the highest number of boats carrying the Blue Flag badge worldwide.


A DAY IN BLUE FLAG STYLE

To earn the awards, vessels must meet Blue Flag criteria through audits that rate the quality, knowledge, and performance of crews and their boats.

During the day of the awards ceremony for the 2022-2023 season, we also had a visit from the Blue Flag Mexico auditors. These were some of their activities on board our vessels.

🔎 BOAT INSPECTION

The auditors checked the different areas and points of the vessels, such as:

  • Decks
  • Engines
  • Signage
  • First aid kit
  • Permits and paperwork

🏊 MAN OVERBOARD DRILL

During the drill, one of the sailors throws himself into the sea, and the crew must pull him to safety, applying the established safety knowledge and logistics.

Watch the following video to learn about the inspection.


Congratulations!

We continue to work every day to maintain and increase the number of vessels awarded with the Blue Flag badge in order to offer a sustainable, safe and quality service to all our visitors.
