Established in 2004, Green Fins is an international standard for environmentally responsible diving and snorkeling. It is supported by UN Environment and Reef World Foundation and is being implemented by the Coral Triangle Center in Indonesia. It is also an active network of more than 400 dive and snorkel operators in eight countries around the world all working to protect our marine environment.
When a dive or snorkel operator joins Green Fins, they are making a commitment to protect coral reefs and our marine environment by agreeing to critically assess all aspects of their day-to-day operations. Operators can join Green Fins for free. They receive annual assessments, training and feedback to help them achieve the Code of Conduct as well as a system to track their progress.
Green Fins provides an opportunity for marine tourism operators to be recognized as role models in sustainability by improving their business practices and helping raise awareness of their customers to help save our reefs and the ocean that connects us all.
