Ocean & Planet Friendly

Working to minimise our impact

Eco Friendly Environmentally Aware We take our environment impact seriously - from minimal brochure printing (less than 10% of some comparable tourism operators), recycling at the office, minimising unnecessary power consumption, vehicle movements, utilising environmental friendly inks and toners, through to our ZERO waste and Dive policies.

Greenstar Award Greenstar Award We were one of the first Worldwide, and the only Far North Queenland operator to be awarded the Greenstar Rating.

Zero Working towards Zero We implemented a ZERO waste plan back in 2008, and we have successfully reduced our waste output by over 55% since that time. We are continuing to work towards a ZERO goal with the support of our manufacturers and partners.

Go Eco GO Eco Certified Dive Operations We have been Go Eco certified since the programme's inception, ensuring not only our dive practices, but that our onshore activities are environmentally aware.

Reef Check Reef Check Training & Monitoring All our instructors are Reef Check Trainers, and have participated in numerous surveys here in Australia and Internationally. Staff have donated their time to train Reef Check Volunteers. The company has also sponsored Reef Check over a number of years.

Advanced Eco Advanced Eco Certified Vessels All our dive vessels have been Advanced Eco Certified.

National Geographic Diver National Geographic Divers We exclusively offer National Geographic Diver programmes in Port Douglas - ensuring new divers are aware of the environment around them.

In the Office We use environmentally friendly inks/toners, FSC certified papers, and minimise all waste with a recycling programme. Printed materials and catalogues are kept to a minimum and we are currently working with Dive Industry groups to develop DIGITAL Dive Record systems and logs to allow us to eleminate virtually all current paperwork. The system will be Tablet based and provide a truely paperless solution.
