OUR PASSION FOR ECO TOURISM OUT SHINES THE REST
Sustainability is not a buzzword here; it’s a way of life. Environmental sustainability is the life and soul of Passions of Paradise, and for many years positioning our business as a benchmark Eco-tourism operator has been at the forefront of our operation. As a single product operator, our fortunes are closely linked to exceeding the expectations of our clientele, and we are constantly endeavouring to become the name that everyone talks or hears about within the industry—a tourism operator that appreciates nature and gives back the environment. The Great Barrier Reef is not “What we do” but rather “Who we are.”

It is with that mindset that we invite our guests to experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef. We value our staff, who are constantly telling our story. We value our passengers, with whom we hope spread our message of conservation and appreciation. And we value our business, which we run with that core principle in mind: We give Mother Nature a say in everything we do
