UPDATE 23/2/22 - We've come to the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming Whitireia Community Snorkel events. Thank you for your interest and support for these events - we look forward to seeing you back in the water soon
My Vaccine Pass required and pre-registration may be required.
Whitireia Community Snorkel Day brought to you by Mountains to Sea Wellington.
Exploring what's under the water can feel like traveling to a new planet. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the underwater world with a snorkel guide and discover the amazing creatures living in the coastal waters close to Porirua. If you’re lucky you might even spot a sea horse! Fun for the whole whānau.
Beginner snorkelers are encouraged (but you must be able to swim). Wetsuits, snorkels, flippers, experienced guides and safety gear are provided.
You may need to book depending on the COVID-19 restrictions, so please check this website for more information. If you click ‘attending’ on the Facebook event, you’ll receive important information and updates, including location changes and postponement due to weather.
We can’t wait to reconnect with you all and to help you explore our big blue backyard. EMR has always strived to be as inclusive as possible with all our public events, however, we are in unprecedented times, which means the safety of our crew, volunteers and participants is paramount.
