We believe that divers have the power to make a difference when they dive and by the decisions they make about who they dive with. We encourage all our divers to follow the good diving practices issued by Green Fins, and include information within our dive briefings to remind divers how best to dive with the least possible impact on the environment.
The mission statement of Green Fins is:
To protect and conserve coral reefs by establishing and implementing
environmentally friendly guidelines to promote a sustainable diving tourism industry
The Green Fins good diving guidelines form the basis for our dive briefings, reminding customers of diving etiquette. We also have copies of the guidelines available on the boat and in the dive centre. An environmental briefing is provided with each dive briefing to remind customers of the devastating impact humans can have on our coral reefs. We remind divers to practice good buoyancy control and have a strict ‘no touch’ policy.
We attend presentations and training sessions arranged by Green Fins in order that we can remain up to date on the latest scientific findings on corals and monitoring techniques.
At the beginning and end of each season, a Reef Watch survey is carried out and data is forwarded to Green Fins for analysis.
We also conduct monthly surveys of an area of reef located at Koh Haa. We monitor the health of this reef and report the findings to Green Fins.
If you have dived with us, you can provide an assessment of our environmental practices by completing a Self Assessment form with Green Fins.
