RELEASE NUMBER 63/16
WAIKIKI, HONOLULU, HAWAII – Inspired by OZONE (Outrigger’s ZONE) – a global action plan to make a positive impact on reef conservation – Outrigger Resorts has introduced a new OZONE Eco Adventure Package at its two premier beachfront resorts in Waikiki. Available at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort and Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort, the vacation package provides an opportunity for both aquatic exploration and the chance to make a genuine difference through ocean conservation.
The OZONE Eco Adventure Package features a buy one get one free Snorkel Eco-Adventure Sail Tour; two admission tickets to the Waikiki Aquarium, including a hand-held audio tour; and a welcome gift that includes reef-friendly sunscreen, swim goggles to provide swimmers a clear underwater view, a dive mesh bag to help with collecting plastics and other manmade materials found in the ocean or on the beach plus a 2017 OZONE Ocean Life calendar.
Pricing for the OZONE Eco-Adventure Package starts from $239 USD for a city view room and is available through December 31, 2017. Reservations can be made online at outrigger.com/ozone , by phone at 1-800-688-7444 or by contacting your preferred travel professional. (Rates are per room, per night. Taxes are not included for guest room. Package cannot be combined with other offers and is subject to availability and change. Restrictions may apply.)
“As an island state, Hawaii is intimately connected to the waters that surround us. Our new OZONE Eco-Adventure package is designed to connect travelers with the ocean and marine life in an authentic manner, as well as provide information about what makes our unique natural environment so special,” said Bitsy Kelley, vice president, corporate communications at Outrigger Enterprises Group. “We want guests to discover the magic of the Pacific Ocean and feel inspired to join in on our global conservation initiative to preserve and protect coral reefs in tropical destinations around the world.”
With more than 60 percent of the world’s coral reefs under immediate threat, Outrigger launched OZONE in 2015, to protect coral reef systems in the iconic beach front settings where Outrigger Resorts are located. In partnership with government, private industry and conservation organizations worldwide, Outrigger has pledged to plant, grow and to promote the protection of existing healthy coral with the goal being a football field worth of coral over the next decade. To date, Outrigger has already reached approximately 37% (21,450 square feet) of its target in coral – the equivalent of a professional field goal kicker’s range.
Through in-room videos, on-property lectures and activities like coral planting at select Outrigger Resorts and programs in conjunction with its OZONE partners guests can take an active role in preserving oceans and their inhabitants for future generations.
