Last year, YachtAid Global (YAG) and Tahiti Private Expeditions (TPE) formed a partnership to further develop Operation Swimway, a conservation program featuring investments into the equipment and science of ocean conservation amid the migration corridors for sharks, manta rays, sea turtles, whales and billfish.
Highlighted by a collaborative tiger shark study in the Tuamotu Islands tagging sharks and maintaining receivers, the partnership brings together YachtAid Global’s conservation initiatives and expertise with TPE’s team of professional guides, marine naturalists and award-winning cinematographers.
Based on the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality, and independence since inauguration, YachtAid Global is further inspired by the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and their “shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future”
Recently, upon the initiative and expertise of TPE, Operation Swimway has been successful in bringing together the three Tahiti-based superyacht agents, Tahiti Ocean, Seal Superyacht Tahiti, and Tahiti Superyacht Support to the benefit of this common cause. Contributing through donations and logistical assistance to the ongoing and forthcoming actions of the program, this trio is now working closely with YAG and TPE, helping make a difference in local conservation.
As French Polynesia is one of the most beautiful cruising destinations in the world, with its crystal-clear waters, coral reefs, lush green islands, and dramatic landscapes, this alliance creates a unique team of luxury yacht specialists enabling interested owners, charter guests, and crew to work closely with distinguished members of the science community.
It is the first time that competing agents have come together in such an agreement aimed to collectively give back to the oceans, and marine ecosystems of the South Pacific. This collaborative effort provides a greater focus on both marine conservation and the improving sustainability of the coastal communities that share with us their land, sea and spirit.
