Join professional snorkel leaders and marine biologists for a guided snorkel at Hallett Cove Beach reef. The reef is home to an amazing variety of colourful fish and plant life.
Suitable for children 5 years and above whom are good swimmers. At least one parent to accompany and supervise 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.
11am is for beginners – never snorkeled before or want extra assistance in shallow water (2m).
1pm is for intermediate – have snorkelled before but still need assistance and would rather snorkel shallower water (2-3m).
3.30pm is for those with some experience as this will be a slightly deeper /longer snorkel (5m deep).

Where do I meet to take part in tour?
EMS Snorkel leaders will have a marquee & registration table set up on Heron Reserve beach front near Boatshed Cafe carpark.
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.
