Tourism Planning


The CTR planning process combines peer-reviewed tourism research and over a decade of professional tourism leadership experience in marine environments.

Through research and consultation, CTR provides essential planning for the development of unforgettable tourism experiences.

Education and collaboration is essential to sustainable tourism.

We work with our clients to develop innovative frameworks, goals, and objectives that match all planning and development needs. We also work with clients to create educational programs that enrich experiences with social, cultural and environmental aspects of a destination.

Through research and planning, we strive to help tourism operators and coastal communities meet their touristic potential.

At CTR, we believe that unforgettable sustainable experiences in the coastal zone and at sea can educate and inspire present and future generations of ocean stewards to protect, preserve, and enjoy marine environments.
