CAIRNS PREMIER REEF & ISLAND TOURS - ENVIRONMENTAL BEST PRACTICE - ADVANCED ECOTOURISM CERTIFIED
Cairns Premier Reef & Island Tours are proud to announce that both their personal Great Barrier reef Tours are now Advanced Eco Certified products.
Throughout our years of operating we have always had a strong commitment to protecting our beautiful Great Barrier Reef and showcasing this Great Wonder of the World to our guests through 2 personal, small number tours. We recently applied for our Advanced Eco Certification status to show our continued commitment to this. We are very pleased to say that this was granted to us and we can now proudly carry the logo.
A few other programmes we have been involved in this tourism year are:
- A new relationship with Australian Rainforest Foundation: the sale of toy turtles on board our 2 vessels – 100% of which goes to the ARF to protect he reef and the rainforest.
- Continued support – Annual collection every November on boat – 100% going to local turtle rehabilitation.
- Support for COTS (eradication of crown of thorns programme).
- Support of Marine Tech school.
Our continued philosophy: To provide the most personal, customer oriented Great Barrier Reef experience.
