It is with great pride that we announce we have entered Ecotourism Australia’s Hall of Fame for being continuously ECO Certified for over 20 years.

Ecotourism Australia is the national peak body for eco and sustainable tourism in Australia and certifies businesses and destinations according to global best practice sustainability standards.

At Coral Expeditions, we’re passionate about the locations we are privileged to visit and believe in leaving these environments better than when we arrived. We are committed to sustainable practices and are always looking for ways to preserve and protect landscapes both above and below the water.

Our voyages showcase the wonders of nature, and the health and wellbeing of both the ocean and land are at the forefront of our minds and integral to the quality of our expeditions. Some of the initiatives we have launched include parting ways with plastic straws in 2018, bringing water and supplies to drought-stricken small island communities, onboard environmental education programs, and involvement in coral species collection for the world’s largest Coral Biobank.

We look forward to continuing our sustainability journey through tourism that values the environment, community, and culture.
