Estuary Expedition

From AUD $30.00
  • Duration: 270 Minutes (approx.)
  • Location: Kent St & Queens Park Rd, Wilson, Western Asutralia
Join us for an expedition of the beautiful Canning River. We will practice some canoeing skills with fun challenges before we set off downstream to explore this incredible environment. Then we will go in search of the local wildlife as we investigate this diverse ecosystem from the water. On the journey, learn how to identify elusive species and find evidence that they leave behind. Finally, learn how to protect this precious estuary and put your new skills into practice!

Your child/ren need to have a reasonable fitness level to paddle on this activity. They need to be able to paddle strongly throughout the program. They will be in two seater canoes with a partner in which they will be required to paddle unassisted by an adult. We will have supervisory adults on the water who can guide them, but cannot paddle with them. Your child/ren will also need a reasonable level of swimming in case they fall out of their canoe. They will need to be able to swim up to 50m unassisted. Although the chances of falling overboard are slim, there is still the possibility of this occurring. There will be qualified instructors on the water to assist the participants, but the children need to come prepared to paddle. All canoes, paddles and safety equipment including PFD’s are provided.

This is a 'drop and leave' activity suitable for children 11-14 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. We appreciate your understanding in booking only children who are age appropriate into activities.
