Underwater invite

There’s an opportunity to take a look underwater at Shakespear Regional Park with an experienced snorkel guide this weekend.

It’s the first time that a free guided snorkel has been held at Shakespear is part of an initiative called Experiencing Marine Reserves – a national programme to teach people about marine conservation.

Snorkelling will be from the shore and participants may see pipefish, triplefins or nudibranchs among other marine life. Barbecue also provided.

The event is on Saturday, February 17, 10am–3pm and starts at Te Haruhi Bay or Army Bay, weather and sea conditions permitting – signs will be in the park up showing the way. Register at the event, on the day.

Free gear hire available, or bring your own snorkel, mask, fins and wetsuit. Recommended for everyone aged five years and over. All children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult to supervise.
