About the Operational Handbooks

Green Fins promotes environmentally friendly diving and snorkelling. The newly released Green Fins Toolbox is a collection of over ten years’ experience from working with over 400 dive centres to apply environmental standards without compromising your customer’s experience.

These books have been designed for individuals, businesses, organisations and governments to support the implementation of the Green Fins approach, collectively reducing threats to coral reefs and other marine environments from the marine tourism industry.
