Te Whanganui-A-Hei Marine reserve
Since becoming a protected area, the marine life around Cathedral Cove is thriving. We exclusively offer the chance to view this magical underwater world whilst our tour. The glass panels on all our vessels provide a window to view the marine life from the comfort of the vessel.
Gemstone Bay Snorkel Trail - What is it?
The skipper will decide on the day which snorkel spot to choose. Factors such as weather, snorkelling skill levels, water clarity and where the marine life has been spotted last are all contributing factors towards choosing the best spot, ensuring every snorkel experience is awesome!
If snorkelling isnt your thing, that’s completely fine as you can experience the same thing as the snorkelers while sitting back and watching the marine life through the glass panels. There is something for everyone on the cruise.
What will I see?
The Friends of Te Whanganui-A-Hei Marine Reserve Trust was established in 2010, primarily to raise funds for the marine reserve. The Trust receives funds through grants and donations. One of the main reasons for setting up the Trust was so that funds could be raised to develop the educational potential of the reserve.
If you would like to help out, donations can be made to The Friends of Te Whanganui-A-Hei Marine Reserve Trust.
