Discover SA's underwater world

Half-price snorkelling sounds like the perfect way to get underwater to celebrate World Oceans Day.

World Oceans Day is celebrated to raise awareness about the major role that the ocean plays in our everyday lives and the importance of children connecting with the seas.

Children are our future scientists, teachers, lawyers, natural resource managers, fishers and seafood consumers. By connecting our next generation with the ocean there is a better chance that they will become advocates for sustainable seas in the future.

So why not help your child connect with the ocean?

Consider something simple like exploring rock pools or going snorkelling. Between 30 June and 3 July, children as young as eight can experience for themselves the unique wonder of snorkelling with Giant Australian Cuttlefish near Whyalla, with a tour run by not-for-profit organisation Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries.

Be quick to book your ticket, which includes a snorkel, mask and fins, a warm semi-dry exposure suit, hood, gloves and boots. Snag yourself a half-price ticket with promotional code ‘halfprice’.

Hear from Southern and Eastern Eyre Peninsula Marine Parks Regional Coordinator Shelley Harrison on why it’s important for children to feel a connection with the ocean.
