Snorkel Marino Rocks
18th February @ 10:30 am
Join professional snorkel leaders and marine biologists for a guided snorkel at Marino Rocks. The reef 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.
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. At least one parent to accompany and supervise two children (under 15 years old). 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.
11am is for intermediate – have snorkelled before but still need assistance and would rather snorkel shallower water (2-3m).
12.30pm is for beginners – never snorkeled before or want extra assistance in shallow water (around 2m).
3pm is for those with some experience as this will be a slightly deeper /longer snorkel (3-5m deep).

Where do I meet to take part in tour?

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).
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 good 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.
