Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries Inc., Natural Resources Eyre Peninsulas Marine Parks Program and Inspiring SA are excited to give the Lower Eyre Peninsula Community a chance to learn about our amazing coastal and marine environment.
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.
EMS snorkel tours are suitable for adults with and without children. Friends and families are grouped together.
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.
