Special Projects which may be done by schools that are here for most of a week or for the Magnetic Island State School:
Magnetic Island Reef Walk Tours
During the winter low tides around the new or full moon periods from about April - October each year Aquasearch can organise to take out a group for a guided tour. The tour is walking on the reef flats of Magnetic Island, where corals are exposed and fish may have been trapped in the tide pools. The reef flats in different bays have various types of corals and reef organisms that would be visible to the students by walking, and there are mangroves nearshore on west-facing beaches which can be visited. The group should contact us for planning a program, and for cost per person (normally $7.70 per person, including GST). Aquasearch would be acting in the capacity of a consultant for the group on-site, and would not be responsible for the insurance against accidents for the group.
