Support for Coral World’s Dolphin Habitat

Dear Source:
Island Meetings & Incentives, founded in 1988, is the Virgin Islands leading destination management company whose sole focus is helping groups plan and deliver a flawless, memorable experience while visiting the islands. Our clients are not here on cruise ships, but overnight visitors who stay at hotels.
For companies planning their top incentive event, or high level meeting, we are the destination specialists. Clients look to us to advise them on what activities, day and night, would best meet their group’s wants and desires. They look to us to help them plan every detail and book the very best suppliers that will deliver what is expected. From airport transfers, tours, a sailing adventures, an elegant dinner at a private estate, to a golf tournament, we are here to organize and manage the entire program.
Our clients are seeking more and more adventure tours. They ask us if we have a Swim with the Dolphins program, as their guests have enjoyed this activity in many other destinations. Unfortunately, we have to disappoint them as it is not available in the Virgin Islands. Our guests have participated in the Sea Lion Program and if the Dolphin Program is half as good, it will be exceptional.
We have worked with Coral World for many years. They are a not only a good Corporate Citizen, but they have always been sensitive to the effect of their activities on the environment. They engage in programs to educate the public about conservation, especially local children. We have also worked with them on Voluntourism Projects. Corporations have embraced a new culture to give back to the local community where they are visiting.
Over the last number of years we have lost many of our attractions, hotels, restaurants and retail businesses. The USVI is competing in the globally with other destinations. We will lose our foothold in the tourism marketplace if we are unable to keep pace with other destinations.
We strongly support the approval and construction of Coral world’s dolphin habitat. Respectfully submitted,
Judi Nagelberg, President
Island Meetings & Incentives Inc.
