Thanks for taking a peek. That eco tour company have three 44ft rigid 
inflatables. Each has three ummm electric outboards at about
300hp each. The local wildlife don't seem to mind they are often joined by 
many dolphins. The day before my tour they had four
Southern Right whales within a couple of metres of the boat for quite a long 
viewing period. An 18ft Great White feeding on the
surface for 30 mins not long before that. Nothing bigger than a seal on my 
tour day!

That beach sure is scenic! I wonder though how ecologic the RIB is.  
Is it powered with an electro motor?

Thanks for showing,
