Event description

Description

Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries Inc. & Natural Resources Eyre Peninsulas Marine Parks Program is excited to give the Lower Eyre Peninsula Community a chance to learn about our amazing coastal and marine environment.

http://www.environment.sa.gov.au/marineparks/find-a-park/eyre-peninsula/thorny-passage

Join snorkel leaders for a guided snorkel at Dutton Bay Jetty (within Thorny Passage Marine Park). The jetty and reef is home to an amazing variety of colourful fish and plant life. The shipwreck of the small oyster cutter the Caprice, which sank in the early 1900s, is near the jetty.

Suitable for children 5 years and above whom are good swimmers. Children under 15 yrs must be supervised by a parent/adult at 2:1 ratio (2 children : 1 parent/adult) - At least one parent to accompany (in water) and supervise maximum of two children.

EMS has limited wetsuits and floatation devices for under 7 years. 5-7 year olds can participate if parents supply childs own wetsuit and floatation device & supervision is one-on-one by parent. Snorkel tours are taken at (or close to) low tide when there is little water movement and best visibility. Depth ranges from 2-6m. Trained snorkel guides lead the tours and are often accompanied by student or qualified marine biologists.

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before start time to fill out out registration form and be fitted with snorkel gear.

Is there an age limit to enter the event?

The event is open to children 5 years and above.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring your own wetsuit and snorkeling gear (if you dont have your own snorkeling equipment we can provide free of charge - subject to availability on day).

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

That is fine.


Do you need to have snorkeling experience?

You dont need snorkeling experience but you do need to be a strong swimmer. Larger groups will be broken down to smaller groups with similair experienced snorkellers in each group - this allows more assistance to those who require it.
