Meridian Adventure Dive is an eco-conscious resort and considers the environmental and socio-economical impact of every aspect of its operation. This starts with resort-wide initiatives, including the use of sustainably sourced reverse-osmosis filtered drinking water and a ban on single-use plastics. Guests are kindly asked to bring their own refillable bottles and in-room toiletries are offered in refillable containers. Other on-site initiatives include sustainably sourced local food and menus that don't compete with other local Wasai businesses. The resort also offers jobs to regional communities where work is scarce.
Regular beach and mangrove clean-ups are conducted, helping to maintain the pristine natural beauty that made the region famous. Guests are invited to get hands-on and collect any trash that they find throughout their stay and underwater explorations. The resort also asks that visitors use reef-safe products, including insect repellent and sunscreen.
Raja Ampat is one of the planet's most pristine marine environments, thanks to decades of strict protection. Meridian Adventure Dive supports the park with strict 'no-touch, no-take' policies and environmental briefings before all in-water activities. Their high-speed pontoon boats were designed especially for avoiding reef damage and have lower emissions than traditionally constructed vessels.
