Eco-Holidays

 

The road to a more sustainable community starts with you. We are all aware of how holidays and travelling can have an adverse effect on the environment. However, by changing the way you travel, it is possible to minimize these effects. 

Let us help you plan your Malaysia Eco trip! We will ensure that your trip is sustainable, is helping to support the local community as much as you can and is filled with valuable experiences. Tell us what you want out of your trip, where would you like to go and what kind of experience that you are interested in and we will create a programme, especially for you.

By engaging with our service, you will already be supporting our conservation projects on Perhentian Islands, as part of your fee would be directed to the conservation works that we do. You will already be one step closer to being a responsible traveller!

Let us help conserve our environment while exploring all that it has to offer. Take the first step with us.

Why choose
Eco-Snorkel Tours?

Coral reefs form an important part to the ocean lives. The oceans thanks largely to phytoplankton are also the biggest contributor of oxygen to our world. However one of the biggest negative impacts to corals and marine lives are from tourism activities.

We at Fuze Ecoteer, work closely with Reef Check Malaysia who are the representatives of Green Fins in Malaysia.  The Green Fins initiative “aims to protect and conserve coral reefs through environmentally friendly guidelines that promote a sustainable diving and snorkelling industry.” 

Learn more about what steps you can take to reduce your impact as a visitor to the reef in the video.

We highly support their efforts and invite you to do the same by going on Eco-Snorkel Tours with us. Jom! Let’s go!
