Taputeranga Marine Reserve – Images of the Sea
Our website shows how the Taputeranga Marine Reserve is special and of benefit to the people of Wellington. The Friends were set up to foster understanding and appreciation of the Reserve, assist DOC to monitor and manage, and develop opportunities such as the Island Bay Snorkel Trail. The Reserve is yours to protect and enjoy.

Monster Treasure Hunt –
On the same day as the Big Dive we want this to be a fun day -it is a birthday party after all! For families, and younger explorers, there will be a monster treasure hunt amongst the rock pools between Princess Bay and Te Reikaehau Point. You’ll need a camera (your phone will do), a keen eye and a sense of adventure. There will be prizes supplied by some of our generous supporters. Start time for the treasure hunt event is 11:00am. Look for the EMR flag and register with Sarah.
