Eco Certification

Calypso Reef Cruises, Aquarius Sail & Snorkel and Daintree Tours all receive an ADVANCED ECO CERTIFIED rating.

Ecotourism is ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.

Advanced Ecotourism: Identifies Australia's leading and most innovative ecotourism products, providing an opportunity to learn about the environment with an operator who is committed to achieving best practice when using resources wisely, contributing to the conservation of the environment and helping local communities.

The ECO Certification logo is a globally recognized brand which assists travellers to choose and experience a genuine and authentic tour, attraction, cruise or accommodation that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. The ECO Certification program assures travellers that certified products are backed by a strong, well-managed commitment to sustainable practices and provides high quality nature-based tourism experiences.

Climate Change Action

Climate Change poses one of the greatest threats to coral reefs as warming seas can trigger coral bleaching. At Calypso Reef Cruises we have implemented strategies to tackle climate change by reducing our carbon emissions. Some examples of this action include:

  • We minimise waste and recycle whenever possible
  • We minimise and track our emissions carbon footprint by using the Marine Park Authority emissions calculator/li>
  • Our vessels are custom-designed and serviced regularly to maintain optimal fuel efficiency
  • We facilitate Reef Check Australia's Research at Opal Reef

Encouraging our guests to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

When travelling we encourage our guests to ensure their environmental practices in everyday life are maintained away from home and to use local energy and water efficiently. We recommend that you check soaps or detergents are biodegradable, never litter and recycle where you can. Visitors to Australia can choose to offset their travel emissions through organisations such as Climate Friendly that provide emissions calculators for a range of activities.

Guests are also encouraged to support tourism operators who have achieved the Ecotourism Certification logo. Ecotourism Australia Certification allows travellers to Australia to identify and support operators who meet the benchmark and so ensure tourism products have minimal impact to the environment.
