“Ms Ayana” & “Cool Runnings” get Blue Flag award


    Two Tobago tour boats have been granted the prestigious Blue Flag award – they are “Ms Ayana” and “Cool Runnings”.

    The Blue Flag is recognised in more than 50 countries as a symbol of quality, signifying adherence to strict criteria relating to organisation, cleanliness, environmental management and services.

    The Tobago Tourism Agency Limited has embraced Blue Flag as a tool to promote sustainability in the island’s tourism sector.

    Back in 2021, Tobago became home to the first Blue Flag boat operator in the English-speaking Caribbean, when the accolade was given to “Top Catch Charters”.

    Yesterday, TTAL partnered with Blue Flag national coordinator Green T&T to present awards to the newest Blue Flag boat operators, and recertify last year’s winner for the 2022/2023 season.

    Awards for Green Key recertification – an international eco-label awarded to tourism accommodation – were also granted to Adventure Eco-Villas and Shepherd’s Inn.
