CuttleFest – Swim with GIANT Cuttlefish
Be guided by nationally accredited snorkel guides and National Parks and Wildlife Service staff for a snorkel with the amazing Giant Australian cuttlefish at Stony Point in the Upper Spencer Gulf Marine Park.
Learn about their blue blood and see first hand their colourful mating rituals in a safe group environment. The reef is also home to a variety of colourful plant life, fish, sea lions, whales and dolphins.
Info about the snorkel sessions:
Each tour lasts for up to 90 minutes (including suiting up in warm wetsuits, safety & cuttlefish behaviour briefing, snorkel and debriefing). The tour is suitable for both adults and children (8 years and above) who can swim at least 25m and tread water. Children under 15 years must be accompanied and supervised in water by an adult (no more than 2 children per adult). Each supervising adult is also a paying tour participant.
Depth ranges from 1-3m and groups stay close to shore in shallower water for best colour displays. Small groups are led by accredited guides with marine biologist guides on hand to answer questions about the cuttlefish.
Arrive at Stony Point at least 30 minutes before the start time to complete the registration form and be fitted with wetsuit & snorkel gear.
In response to COVID-19, the organisers are closely monitoring developments and taking action in line with Government advice to mitigate any risk posed to the community.
