Tōtaranui 250

In November 2019, a flotilla will arrive in Tōtaranui/Queen Charlotte Sound.

The vessels include:
- Two waka hourua (double-hulled canoes) - the Haunui and Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti
- The Fa’afaite i te Ao Mā’ohi, a va’a moana from Tahiti.
- The HMB Endeavour replica from the Australian National Maritime Museum
and the Spirit of New Zealand.

A cultural welcome to the Tuia 250 flotilla, led by Tangata whenua iwi, will be held at Meretoto/Ship Cove - to acknowledge Meretoto as the site of the significant on-shore First Encounters between Māori and Pākehā at Tōtaranui.

Due to site restrictions, there is no public access to the reserve that day.

There will be access for some leisure boats in the bay.
