A chance to socialize while exercising and doing your bit for the environment. You are notified of the specific location in the Ricketts Point Sanctuary by email each month.


You can snorkel at various locations in the Sanctuary. Most of the area is shallow water of less than five metres, providing an easily accessible recreational area for snorkelling.

Speakers Evenings

We usually hold 6 speaker evenings a year, on the first Thursday night of the month, on each even month. ie February, April, June, Ausust, October, and December.
