Join professional snorkel leaders and marine biologists for a guided snorkel Encounter Marine Park, off Kent Reserve, Victor Harbor. The reef is home to an amazing variety of colourful fish and plant life.
EMS snorkel events are supported by Natural Resources, Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges and the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.
Suitable for children 5 years and above whom are good swimmers. Children under 13 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.
