|1 Feb, Fri 1:50PM||Snorkeling at Gordon Bay|
|Grade:2/6||Length||4km||Southern Sydney Branch|
|(NEW!!!) Co-led by Mark Goodson (firstname.lastname@example.org, 0425313173) and Esther Chow. It was good fun snorkeling at Clovelly Beach on 8/1/19. Water was warm. The group wants to do it again, except this time we go Gordons Bay as it has flat surf. If you haven't done snorkeling before, this is a good chance to learn. Several members bought a full face mask at $60 at Decathlon and said that it makes snorkeling easier.
Low tide is at 1:42pm. We'll meet at the Clovelly Bus Terminal at 1:50pm. Then we walk to head of Gordons Bay where there is a small beach. Bring drinks, snacks and sun protection. Slippery rocks, risks associated with swimming.
