February 2012

Beautiful weather for the start of the month. Ideal to visit Goat island and learn to snorkel. Our guided trip includes a talk about the marine reserve and its creation and changes. Learn about the marine life you will see in New Zealand's best coastal marine reserve - just an hour north of Auckland City.
Safety is our priority and even if you cannot swim, you will learn how easy it is to float while wearing a wetsuit. We also take safety boards for snorkellers to use if needed. Gain confidence, learn to breathe through a snorkel and see the amazing underwater life.

Excellent snorkelling conditions

It's been a good month for snorkelling and diving - off and on. No stingers seen at all, just loads of chain salps which are absolutely harmless. We've taken plenty of people out on a guided snorkelling experience and water is warm on these sunny days - around 20degC.
Book early for your snorkelling experience as numbers are limited each day. If you've never tried, then now is the time! Look forward to seeing you at Goat Island.
