This means, if you go snorkeling/diving with Big Island Divers, your excursion will actively support the transition towards renewable energy and with that protect our beloved oceans. If you are looking for a dive tour operator in West Hawai'i that is doing business with a minimal climate impact, consider an excursion with them. You can book your trip at www.bigislanddivers.com.
|EMISSION NEUTRAL*:||starting August 2019|
|EMISSIONS OFFSET:||436.55 metric tons|
*Emission Neutral - or Carbon Neutral - means that this Business, Organization or Event has offset 100% of calculated emissions.
Since August 2019, Big Island Divers is offsetting emissions produced by our operation. Our mission is to increase our guests' awareness and appreciation of the marine ecosystem by providing them with life-changing on-water experiences. Our hope is that each person who joins our tours brings home with them a desire to care for our oceans in their everyday lives. We understand the impact of carbon emissions on our oceans; we also know how vital healthy oceans are, not only to our business.
