Abstract

The purpose of this research is to verify the validity of an antecedent-consequence integrating model of recreationist-environment fit (R-E fit). This study selected the marine sport tourists in the Guaninting waters of Penghu as the subjects. The research used a questionnaire survey with 300 questionnaires handed out and returned. Of these, 253 were valid and 47 were invalid; therefore, the effective response rate was 84.3%. Then the associated data were collected for descriptive statistical analysis and structural equation modeling analysis using statistical software SPSS20.0 and Smart PLS 2.0. The research results reveal the following conclusions: (1) Familiarity has significant influence on R-E fit; (2) Self-efficacy has significant influence on R-E fit; (3) Restorative environment features have significant influence on R-E fit; (4) Recreational environment hassles have little significant influence on R-E fit; (5) R-E fit has significant influence on flow experience; (6) R-E fit has significant influence on recreational satisfaction; and (7) R-E fit has significant influence on destination loyalty. Accordingly, at the end of this study, suggestions are offered for future research, along with implications for tourism management.
