Briefings

Before every dive, you should inform your customers about how fragile the marine environment is and remind all guests to not touch or to come into contact with the coral reefs. Green Fins has an outline of a model dive and boat briefing that you can download and share which promotes a non-intrusive approach to diving. Aletrnatively, read on to find out more.

Do not Anchor on Coral Reefs

Anchors are heavy and often have a long chain attached. When dropped onto a fragile coral or even seagrass beds, it causes sigificant ecological damage. If the boat changes direction with wind or currents it will cause even more damage as the chain is dragged over the reef. Instead, use mooring buoys or drift until the divers surface. It also sets a good example for others and creates awareness.
