What is the Eco Certification Program?

The ECO Certification logo is a globally recognized brand which assists travelers to choose and experience a genuine and authentic tour, attraction, cruise or accommodation that is environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. The ECO Certification program assures travelers that certified products are backed by a strong, well managed commitment to sustainable practices and provides high quality nature-based tourism experiences.

The ECO Certification Program is a world first. It has been developed to address the need to identify genuine nature and eco tourism operators. It is also now being exported to the rest of the world as the International ECO Certification Program.

When choosing your boat tour it is reassuring to know that many Whitsunday Operators have gone to the trouble of ensuring that their vessel is operated within the guidelines of the Eco Certification program. The definition of eco tourism adopted by Ecotourism Australia is:

Ecotourism is ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.

The 3 levels of ECO Certification are:

Nature Tourism: Tourism in a natural area that leaves minimal impact on the environment.

Ecotourism: Tourism in a natural area that offers interesting ways to learn about the environment with an operator that uses resources wisely, contributes to the conservation of the environment and helps local communities.

Advanced Ecotourism: Australia's leading and 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.


The Whitsunday Islands are one big protected Australian National Park, this is why they are such a beautiful place to visit. The best way to visit this vast National Park is aboard an Eco Accredited overnight Sailing vessel.
