Join professional snorkel leaders and marine biologists for a guided snorkel within Encounter Marine Park at Second Valley reef. The reef and jetty is home to an amazing variety of colourful fish and plant life.
EMS snorkel events are proudly supported by the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Board and DEWNR Marine Parks.
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 1-6m. Trained snorkel guides lead the tours and are often accompanied by student or qualified marine biologists.
Please arrive at least 30 minutes before snorkel tour start time to fill out out registration form and be fitted with snorkel gear.
Note that snorkel sessions below have been organised for different experience levels-
Beginners – not snorkeled before – need extra assistance and guidance.
Intermediate – have snorkeled before but not 100% confident.
