Due to popular demand we are having another snorkel day at Reotahi in the school holidays!
Bring the whole whānau to Reotahi and explore the waters of the Whangārei Harbour Marine Reserve.
Bring your own gear or get free hire of our mask, snorkel, fins, and wetsuits and go snorkelling with one of our experienced snorkel guides! You never know what you might spot - Discover triplefins, leatherjackets, nudibranchs, and many more species living around the rocky reef.
No pre-registration necessary for this event - just turn up and register with us on the day!
Sea conditions permitting - Please check our website and facebook page for postponements. We are unable to announce last minute changes to the event on eventfinda. Donations/koha welcome.
Recommended for everyone 5 years and up. All children under 15 years must be accompanied by an adult beach observer. Experienced guides and advanced safety procedures will be in place on the day.
Snorkel equipment and all joint surfaces will be sanitised thoroughly between uses. There will also be an event QR code to use on the day.
This event is funded by the Department of Convseration.
Directions: After McLeods Bay follow Reotahi Rd, then to the end of Beach Rd and up to the Reotahi carpark at the top of the hill.
After your snorkel, you can also walk to the nearby freezing works or climb Mt Aubrey or even Mt Manaia.
Experiencing Marine Reserves runs a series of free and subsidised events over the summer months - we rely on your support to make them happen. We appreciate donations, either cash on the day, online or by giving a koha of your time volunteering at a future event. Most people donate $5-10pp.
