Support to the affected British Virgin Islands and US Virgin Islands after Hurricane Irma

The Islands of Culebra, Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Tortola, Barbuda, Antigua, Saint Maarten and St. John suffered mayor destruction after the passage of Hurricane Irma through the Caribbean on September 6, 2017.  In Puerto Rico, the Blue Flag awarded Marina Puerto del Rey and the Blue Flag awarded company ‘Sea Ventures Pro Dive Center’, as well as the companies ‘East Island Excursions’ and ‘Bellaventura Inc,’ came together to establish a collection center for first aid kits, food, water, clothing and construction material to deliver to the affected population in these islands. The response was immediate and continued until Puerto Rico was later hit by Hurricane Maria on September 20th, 2017. These Sustainable Boating Tourism Operators also were very helpful in ferrying refugees of the hurricane to Puerto Rico where they were housed in shelters as they awaited the chance to return to their own homes.
