Have an exciting, hands-on, educational and fun snorkel experience guided by experts who can tell you what you’re looking at. The 30A Sealife staff offer an interactive, hands-on snorkel program where participants will learn about the life cycles of sea turtles. We will also study their feeding habits and their behavior as we snorkel along side of these magnificent creatures. It is our hope to connect participants to these marine creatures in an effort to promote a lifelong preservation of these species. Participants will also snorkel in the grass beds learning about marine organisms that live alongside sea turtles in this same habitat. We recommended ages 4+ (average water depth during snorkeling event 2-4 feet).
In the lab we will have shark sandbox activity, shark tooth craft activity, and touch tank sensory craft.
Learn about manatees, dolphins and sea turtles. Experience touch tank animals. Sea trash arts and crafts.
In the lab we will learn about the parts of sea turtles, where they eat, touch tank critters that live with turtles, craft project and beach walk.
Lab program includes shark identification, shark liver lab, shark attack project, predator / prey lab and tagging shark program.
