Snorkel Tumby Bay Jetty

- @

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 Tumby Bay Jetty (within Sir Joseph Banks Group Marine Park). The jetty is home to an amazing variety of colourful plant and fish life including the leafy sea dragon.

If you are looking for a great place to stay then you cant go past the Tumby Bay Villas click here to book. Thank you Tumby Bay Villas for supporting EMS with affordable accommodation for two nights at Tumby Bay.

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.

Please arrive at least 30 minutes before start time to fill out out registration form and be fitted with snorkel gear.

Snorkel times:

Snorkel 1- Tumby Bay Jetty – 14th January/10am

Where do I meet to take part in tour?

EMS Snorkel leaders will have a registration table set up at Tumby Bay Jetty carpark.

– look for the EMS marquee & banners.

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 don’t have your own snorkeling equipment we can provide free of charge – subject to availability on day).

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 don’t need snorkeling experience but you do need to be a good swimmer. Larger groups will be broken down to smaller groups with similar experienced snorkelers in each group – this allows more assistance to those who require it.
