The Wilderness Escape Surfing Day is perfect for those who would like to learn to surf, and for those who would like to develop their surfing skills. Surfing is rejuvenating, tones of fun, and is an excellent way to gain confidence in the ocean. With transport, wetsuits and surf boards provided, all that’s required is a positive attitude and a willingness to give it a go! The participants will be eased into the waves gently with our learner boards, but by end of the session they could be out shredding it up confidently on one of SA’s best surf beaches!

By the end of the day, after plenty of encouragement and support by the group to conquer the heights, the participants feel accomplished and have made lots of new friends!

Port Noarlunga Jetty offers a great setting for beginner snorkelers. The group begins on the beach with the basics and getting fitted into the snorkel, fins and masks. Once prepared, we will practice our snorkelling skills in the safety of the shallows.
Once we have learnt the snorkelling basics, we will walk to the end of the Port Noarlunga Jetty to enter the water and get a closer look at the reef and hand feed the local fish! There will also be the opportunity to break the day up with some fishing, beach games and other beach activities.
