Magical Mangrove Snorkel Tour

National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia are celebrating the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary National Park – Winaityinaityi Pangkara which encompasses the mangroves of Port Gawler as their Park of the Month in November 2022.

Join snorkel leaders from Experiencing Marine Sanctuary (EMS), for a guided snorkel through the magical world of the Port Gawler River Mangrove Forest within the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary. The mangrove forest is home to an amazing variety of colourful fish and plant life. Marvel at the mangroves and their upward growing roots called ‘pneumatophores,’ which help them take in oxygen.

Underwater, keep your eyes peeled for crabs, sea squirts, sea anemones, fish, prawns, and rays. Spot resident and migratory shorebirds in the Bird Sanctuary.

This event is scheduled for Saturday 19 November 2022, but if the event is cancelled it will be rescheduled to Saturday 26 November 2022.

Make sure to arrive 30 minutes before snorkel time to fill out your registration form and be fitted with snorkel gear.
