"Surely we have a responsibility to care for our blue planet.
The future of humanity, and indeed all life on earth,
now depends on us."
Sir David Attenborough
We all know that tourism has an impact on the environment. As tourism grows here in Komodo this impact is becoming increasingly obvious: irresponsible anchoring, poor diving and snorkeling practices, and careless waste management by unscrupulous operators are having a huge negative impact on our fragile marine environment.

Our aim at Wunderpus is to guide you on an unforgettable adventure here in Komodo, whilst minimising our impact on this amazing place. The Wunderpus team are passionate about helping to protect and preserve the unique marine environment that we are lucky enough to work in every day. So we try to meet this responsibility by operating our business in the most sustainable and environmentally-conscious manner possible.

How do we do this?

We strive to be part of the solution,
not the problem.
  • By operating a zero plastic policy onboard our boats and recycling all recyclable waste including cans, bottles and engine oil.

  • By providing our guests with reusable drinking bottles for use onboard.

  • We provide access to reef safe products such as sunscreen, soap and shampoo.

  • Through education and training of our crew about environmental issues, and through offering them opportunities to become dive certified for free. This helps to show them WHY we are so passionate about the marine environment.

  • By following strict policies such as the Green Fins and Manta Watch codes of conduct for all our diving and snorkeling activities.

  • We make regular beach cleans during our trips to help reduce the amount of plastic entering the ocean.

  • Installation and maintenance of moorings in Komodo National Park in order to minimize damage caused by anchoring to our fragile coral reefs.

  • By minimising the amount of seafood offered onboard, as much of the seafood available locally is sadly illegally or unsustainably caught.

  • Instigating the start of the Save Money, Save Komodo initiative which is aimed at helping minimise plastic waste created in Komodo.

  • We are a founder member of DOCK (Dive Operators Collaboration Komodo), an organisation created to increase the safety and professionalism of local dive operations, and support local educational and environmental projects.

  • Support of Coral Guardian coral regeneration initiatives in Komodo National Park.

  • Sponsorship and support of other local environmental initiatives such as Trash Hero Komodo, MantaWatch, MMF and WWF.

  • Twice yearly environmentally focused trips with our partner Dive Respect Protect Divetours.
