Experiencing Marine Reserves runs a series of free and subsidised events over the summer months - we rely on your support to make them happen. We appreciate donations, either cash on the day, online or by giving a koha of your time volunteering at a future event.
As this is a free event - if you can no longer attend after registering you need to give us at least 24 hours notice. If we have less than 24 hrs notice or a no show we will be issuing a $15pp invoice, as people will miss out on the opportunity to explore the marine environment with us.
Please note that due to COVID-19 we will have some additional restrictions and questions surrounding screening for illness. If you do not meet the requirements please do not reserve spaces. Snorkel equipment and all joint surfaces will be sanitised between uses.
