This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see the beauty of our underwater world. Take a peek at the fascinating array of marine organisms that live right here on our doorstep, out of sight, just under the surface.
We will have local ocean experts joining us on dry land to share their knowledge on seaweed, sponges and many other amazing creatures found along our coastline.
Beginner snorkelers are encouraged (but you must be comfortable in the water). The minimum age of snorkellers is 8, and those under 16 must be accompanied by a snorkelling adult.
We provide all the gear free of charge and will also buddy you up with an experienced snorkel guide to facilitate the best experience possible. Our guides will get you kitted out, answer any fishy questions you might have and generally look after you whilst you take a dive into the salt and spray.
The exact location of the snorkel will announced via Facebook closer to the day after weather and other conditions are taken into account.
This is event is brought to you in partnership with Greater Wellington Regional Council.
Note: This event was planned for January 28 but, due to weather conditions, has been postponed to the new date of February 11.
