Wherever you go in the world it’s really important to check out the dive centre you go with and make sure they abide by international Code of Conducts, and have good ethics.
Here at Jay’s Pro Dive Centre we feel so passionately about the marine environment we dive in, we have developed our own Code of Conduct for both the general marine environment, but also for interactions with megafauna.
At Jay’s we believe we should take only photos, leave only bubbles. Protecting the marine environment is crucial for a successful dive centre but also for world wide conservation. We’re partnered with the marine conservation NGO Love The Oceans and actively assist marine researchers in environmental protection. You can read more about our ethical policies here.

The Green Star Award identifies dive businesses that care about the environment and are acting to protect it.
At Jay's we work to reduce any negative impacts we might have on the environment. Not only are we partnered with Love The Oceans and help marine biologists with research, but we also have our own policies in place to help the environment including discouraging use of single-use plastic, building using locally sourced, natural materials and recycling waste water for the gardens.
