Taking your children to the New Zealand Marine Reserves is a great opportunity to enjoy a family break in picturesque surroundings. Naturally, some reserves are more suitable for children than others.
Some wildlife enthusiasts prefer to make their Marine Reserve trips all about rare species. If this applies to you, Ulva Island-TeWharawhara may meet your needs.
Visiting the Marine Reserves is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy some of nature’s most beautiful sites. However, if you don’t pay attention to certain conservation rules, these areas won’t remain beautiful for long.
Very few of the Marine Reserves permit you to fish. The Sugar Loaf Islands are a refreshing exception to this rule, which broadens the water activities you can take part in there. As well as offering diving and snorkelling opportunities, there are beaches for you to explore too.
The sub-Antarctic Marine Reserves are heavily guarded by the Department of Conservation. Eco-tourism is the name of the game for anybody visiting them. However, once there, you can enjoy rare bird species and marine life that are like nothing you will see anywhere else on this planet.
