Tiburon Explorer is operated by the Explorer Ventures fleet that strives to enhance the sustainability of their operations at every turn, and lead the industry towards better protocols for resorts and liveaboards alike. To do this, Explorer Ventures created the Dive Green Environmental Management Policy. Using this policy, the team can better identify the potential environmental impacts of their operation in order to develop strategies that will help measure, and ultimately minimise, their footprint. In turn, the policy also helps ensure the long-term sustainability of coral reefs, recreational scuba diving, and local livelihoods.
As a proud Green Fins member, Explorer Ventures empower divers by connecting them with internationally recognised best practices, and educating guests both before and during their trip. Explorer Ventures also supports the local communities and marine protected areas in which they operate through engagement on mooring programs, scientific research, and financial donations. From participating with special research itineraries to accommodating researchers on board, and helping to collect the data that they use, Explorer Ventures is committed to aiding scientific research.
