Our Commitment

Minimal impact and to maintain and protect the natural environment

Commitment Collage

 

We have an unwavering personal and professional commitment to the environment of Port Phillip Bay and surrounds. We operate under the ethos of minimal impact and to maintain and protect the natural environment and sanctuaries visited. Why? As parents of two children who will one day inherit the earth – we believe we should be ambassadors for the environment.

Our on board crew provides an intimate tour commentary which educates guests in marine conservation and the natural environment they are experiencing.

We maintain an Advanced Eco Certification accreditation, the highest of the three levels of certification.  The Advanced Eco Certification recognises the:

…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.” (Eco Tourism Australia, 2012)

It’s important to know, that a percentage of each guest ticket goes to Parks Victoria to assist with the maintenance of the Port Phillip Heads Marine National Park incorporating Pope’s Eye, Point Lonsdale, Point Nepean, Portsea Hole, Mud Islands and Swan Bay.
