Keen divers have the chance to explore the depths and see another side of Goat Island this weekend during a guided swim with Experience Marine Reserves (EMR).
On Saturday, March 16, swimmers can expect to see snapper, silver drummer and the elusive crayfish, as well as learn about the exciting ecosystem of the underwater world.
The event will run from 10am-2.30pm. Anyone who wants to participate can turn up on the day and register.
Entry to the event is by donation, but snorkelling gear including masks, fins and wetsuits, will be available free of charge.
All children under age 15 must be accompanied by an adult beach observer. Info: emr.org.nz
