When you manage a company , it is normal to look for new markets.
In the Azores, some whale watching operators promote oversea the Shark swimming activity, but:
- Does this activity sustentable for the Azorean “soft ecotourim image” and whale watching marketing ?
- Does the very special clients who book for such adrenalin experience will bring some thing economicly, socialy and environmentaly positive for the archipelago?
- Does this activity without risk for the client who want to swim with shark, what will happen in case of accident for the whole Azorean touristic industy?
- Does this activity with no risk for the people who are swimming with dolphins, I wish it will have differents zones...
- Does this activity go together with the fisherman activity ?
- Doesn’ t the Azorean authority have to supervise and maybe legalize such bussiness ?
Looking forward for your comments and to share your experience and your idea...
