Quotes

"I learnt that marine reserves house several different types of fish and other kinds of sea life and that they also have some special fish that you wouldn't think existed. I also learnt that they sometimes hold snorkelling trips”

“That there is actually living creatures in the mud at our local beach. And also about barnacles!!”

“That you do have to look after the stuff around the estuary.”

“I learnt that there are quite a bit of interesting topics that are connected to our marine environment.”

Community Events

Over the past 5 we have grown our community events in Auckland from 2 per season to over 18. Since our first Community Guided Snorkel Day in 2010 we have reached 3446 people through 42 snorkel and kayak events (data from the 2017/18 season). We have grown our range to include all the marine reserves in the Hauraki Gulf through partnerships with Auckland Sea Kayaks and Mission Bay Watersports. We also head to offshore islands like Te Hauturu O Toi - Little Barrier and the Mokohinaus with Gulf Eco Adventures
