Welcome to Blue Sail
Since we set up Blue Sail seven years ago, we've helped over 100 places and partnerships. We’ve worked with cities, regions, islands, tourist boards, national parks, world heritage sites and individual visitor attractions.
What is Blue Sail?
Blue Sail’s all about destinations. We’re both a tourism consultancy and a strategic marketing agency.
People come to us when they want things to change. They may be looking for more visitors, or a different type of visitor. They may want to understand their visitors better. Perhaps they want to change the way they manage visitors, and get them to spend more. Sometimes they want to improve experiences for visitors and get investment into the place.
Most of them want the outside world to think differently about their place. And they want to do partnerships better.
These are all things we can help you do well.
