Whangarei Harbour Marine Reserve is not just famous for its varied wildlife. It is the Marine Reserve that caught the DOCâ€™s attention following years of students campaigning for its protection. Somehow, this makes a visit there extra-special.
If you want to make sure the Marine Reserve you visit benefits from calm waters, try TeTaupwae o Rongokako. As the tide is low most of the time, you can swim there easily with children. In addition, the beach walks make it ideal for romantic couples.
If you want to see nature at its most beautiful, visit a Marine Reserve that has volcanic origins. Thanks to their rugged nature, volcanic islands offer a unique landscape. Throw in a variety of climates, and you will witness a diverse range of marine and wildlife.
Estuaries are not everyoneâ€™s idea of a great day out, but Westhaven is different. As a Marine Reserve, it is ideal for relaxation fans and adrenaline junkies alike. Providing you avoid tides at appropriate times, you can easily spend a day in this area.
The Kermadec Islands are fiercely protected by the Department of Conservation. However, that doesnâ€™t mean you cannot travel there at all. With permission and an appropriate sailing plan in place, your trip will be a success.
