Friday 9th July    – Sunday 11th July 2021

10.30am Friday – 5.30pm (Approx) Sunday

GETTING READY FOR THE WEEKEND

WHAT TO EXPECT

The fun begins when we pick you up in the city (See map and info below) at 10.30am. We head out towards Whyalla with a stop at Port Germein to have a leg stretch and check out the longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere! There will also be a lunch stop on the way at a bakery or cafe (own expense)

Once we arrive in Whyalla, we get to settle in to our accomodation before meeting at a designated spot, and going on to have a pub dinner and  getting to know each other a little more.

Saturday morning is the big event! After breakfast we will head on over to “Where the Cuttlefish Are” and get our snorkel event underway. There will be 3 snorkel guides and if you have any fears or concerns before the event, be sure to let Mich, Beck or Kate know. Once we have all had enough of snorkelling , we will head back to Whyalla with a cafe/bakery lunch stop on the way (own expense) before heading to our cabins for a hot shower and a change of clothes.

In the afternoon we will have a lovely stroll along the foreshore, taking in some of the local sights incuding the brand new circular jetty and (hopefully) the local friendly dolphins will pop their heads up to day hi! Then it’s over to the pub for dinner (own expense) before retiring for the evening.

After breaky on Sunday, we will gather our belongings, pick up our pre ordered lunches (own expense) and head towards home. Stopping at the base of the Flinders, we have a lovely (grade 2) easy little hike to stretch our legs and have our lunch, before heading back to Adelaide. Our aim is to get back by approximately 5.30pm – depending on the days events this can be quite fluid. Please ensure you let one of our hosts know if you have a strict schedule!

 

Please note that our weekend events involve a go with the flow type attitude and sometimes the itinerary changes. This means we may adapt the activities to the people and environment, to ensure the most safety and fun for all!

We thank you for your understanding around this! 

Snorkelling Whyalla

Light breakfasts are included and where possible, an all hands on deck approach would be appreciated.

Tea and Coffee provided.

We plan to pack  up at around 10.00am  on the Sunday before picking up our lunches and heading over to the base of the Flinders for our hike and then back to Adelaide that afternoon/evening, for an approximate arrival of 5.30pm.

If you have a strict schedule, please advise your Mucha Host so we can ensure you get back when you need to.

*WHAT TO BRING

  • We recommend taking a deliciously warm long sleeve jumper and long pants to get into after the snorkelling – you will be cold when you get out of the water.
  • You will also need a towel and bathers and a wet pack to carry them in.
  • It’s the middle of winter and it gets cold in Whyalla – you’ll need warm clothes – layers recommended.
  • Toiletries – goes without saying! 😉
  • Snacks, sunscreen, sunnies, hat, comfortable clothes and walking shoes etc – we will be walking and hiking.
  • Something comfy to sleep in – remember you’ll be sharing!
  • A rain jacket in case of showers.  (You can check the weather forecast on the link on this page prior to the day.)
  • Backpack for carrying lunch and drinks. Drink bottle and a lunch box. Any medication you need.
  • Don’t forget your camera, an easy going attitude and your biggest smile and, of course, your sense of adventure!

*Note – We do ask you to ensure the size of your luggage is kept to a minimum – and soft bags are preferred.

Due to the amount of snorkelling equipment, we have very limited luggage space in our vehicles.

(We don’t want to have to leave anything behind!) With thanks.
