These operators help to protect and present the Marine Park to a consistently high standard and are recognised by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority for their commitment and dedication to showcasing and preserving the reef.  These operators are independently certified by environmental certification schemes, Ecotourism Australia and Earth Check, as part of the High Standard Tourism Operator program requirements.

The following High Standard Tourism Operators are located in the main areas of operation in the Marine Park – Far North, Port Douglas, Cairns, Townsville, the Whitsundays, Capricorn Coast and Reef Wide.
