Marine Ranger

From AUD $35.00
  • Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: 153 Arcadia Dr, Shoalwater, WA

Become a marine ranger for the day when you join us in Shoalwater Islands Marine Park-the home of Penguin Island. You will travel across to Penguin Island on a ferry, meet a marine park ranger and see what their daily jobs entail, conduct a nesting shore bird survey, discover the effects of pollution on marine animals and enjoy an exclusive penguin feeding tour. Once this jam-packed day is over, we will jump on the ferry back to mainland. Successful completion rewards you your marine ranger qualification at the end of the day.

The ticket cost for this activity includes transport on the ferry to and from Penguin Island.

This is a 'drop and leave' activity suitable for children 7-12 years of age. Tickets must be purchased for participating children only. The ages for each activity are in place for your children to get the most out of their activity and due to safety and management on a drop-off activity we cannot allow older or younger children to participate.
