In 2020, Great Keppel Water Sports Pty Ltd achieved the Ecotourism certification, and in turn, is recognised as a High Standard Tourism Operator within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

Ecotourism Australia’s certification process requires:
“Tourism in a natural area that focuses on optimal resources use, leaves minimal impact on the environment and offers interesting ways to learn about the environment with operators that use resources wisely, contribute to conserving the environment and help local communities.”

Both our Guided Snorkel Tours and Certified Boat Dives are Ecotourism Certified tours, and you will witness our staff adhering to best practices within the marine park, and contributing to Citizens Science through reef health surveys and Eye on the Reef sightings reports.

Our focus is on economic, social, marine park and environmental sustainability best practices which are core to our operation, and we have a commitment to delivering a quality tourism experience.
