Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries Inc.

Safe and supervised 'in water' experiences of our unique marine life and habitat.

Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries (EMS) is an incorporated, not-for-profit community organisation.

EMS snorkel events are supported by Natural Resources, Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges and Eyre Peninsula.

The program is based on the highly successful New Zealand program ‘Experiencing Marine Reserves’.  

Our EMS snorkel leaders are qualified snorkelling instructors and offer guidance, direction and coordination of our snorkel experiences.

EMS provides mask (goggles), snorkel, fins (flippers) and wetsuits (these are limited so please bring your own if you can). 

The EMS program is designed for adults and children (8 years and above), parents & grandparents that are interested in experiencing and learning about SA’s unique marine life and habitats. Participants under 15 years need to be accompanied in water by at least one parent (2:1 ratio - two children: 1 parent). Children 5-7 years can join in if accompanied by a parent one-on-one with parent supplied buoyancy jacket and wetsuit).

Snorkel tours typically last for around 30 minutes. Registration, gear allocation and snorkel safety briefing can take up to 30 minues before snorkel tour.
