Ocean Freedom ENVIRONMENTAL BEST PRACTICE - ADVANCED ECOTOURISM CERTIFIED

Ocean Freedon are proud to announce they have maintained their Advanced Eco Certified certification since 2009. Throughout our years of operating we have always had a strong commitment to protecting our beautiful Great Barrier Reef and showcasing this Great Wonder of the World to our guests through two personal, small number tours. A few specific programmes and initiatives we have been involved in include:

  • Continued annual coin collection every May on the boat with 100% going to local turtle rehabilitation.
  • Continued support for COTS (crown of thorns eradication programme).
  • Continued Support of Marine Tech school.
  • Updated Books Ocean Freedom’s Treasures and Ocean Free highlighting our reef areas with passengers encouraged to become guardians of any marine life they may have photographed on the day.
  • For over 20 years we have not used any plastic plates, cutlery, cups or plastic straws on either vessel. In 2018 we stopped the sale of bottled water on both boats.

Our continued philosophy: To provide the most personal, customer oriented Great Barrier Reef experience.

Ocean Free and Ocean Freedom, are the two Great Barrier Reef tours operated by Cairns Premier Reef & island Tours. Owners Perry Jones and Taryn Agius have been operating reef tours locally for over 23 years and specialise in giving low guest numbers highly personalised tours and an unforgettable reef experience. Guests regularly report the tour/s to be the highlight of their holiday. Great pride is taken in the crew, who are hand-picked for unsurpassed service, professionalism and a high respect for safety.

Further to our last communications – we have had some welcome news this week, with the lifting of some border restrictions – a little earlier  than originally expected – GREAT  news that we can now welcome all our QLD neighbours – thank you collectively to all QLD for all your efforts and to the Premier for doing this.

NEW OPERATIONAL STARTING DATE NOW JULY 3RD 2020

 We continue to work very hard on making the boats look great and on our COVID-19 safe procedures and we will be operating from July 3rd initially staggering our dates – please send us an e-mail if you have any queries .

We understand that there are some ongoing negotiations for perhaps the interstate borders opening a little earlier too – let’s  keep respecting the  health and hygiene rules and social distancing wherever possible and download the COVID -19 safety app so any small outbreaks can be managed quickly and effectively – so the premiers can feel confident that we are safe to open and allow this to happen earlier …fingers crossed .. So all of you potential interstate guests please don’t give up hope yet for your “summer in the winter” holiday in the beautiful warm tropics – we may yet be able to welcome you too – we shall keep you posted !

And on a DEFINITE  NOTE – We are VERY excited to WELCOME  ALL our QLD neighbours and can’t wait to show you our beautiful region – we all know how truly beautiful the whole of QLD is and never a better time for all of us to now see our own backyard and get QLD back on its feet !
