What do teachers say about ECOTREASURES?


“Hornsby Girls High School , Year 9 PASS Elective had an amazing experience with ECOTREASURES. 17 students ( over half, of whom had very limited experience and skill in open water) experienced the beauty and thrill of participating in the Manly Snorkel Walk and Talk tour at Shelly Beach. All abilities were very professionally catered to and staff couldn’t have been more engaging or helpful. Hornsby Girls would definitely look at future excursions of this kind with this company.

Paddle boarding, Kayaking and snorkeling can be combined at the Basin Campground location in a rotation system. This unique range of marine activities are located in a safe and fun location in the same area. We run the tours in the protected estuary which is very calm and protected from wind. This location is very unique as your class can participate in above and below the water activities in the same area and swap between activities.
