EMS snorkel events are Proudly supported by the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Board and DEWNR Marine Parks.

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).
