Tawharanui Marine Reserve and Pest Free Open Sanctuary

Tāwharanui Open Sanctuary is the only place on mainland NZ whereby both land and sea are protected as one. It truly is a wonderful place and we feel very privileged to be the only Snorkel School allowed to run our tours in the park. Come along and enjoy Tāwharanui's many wonders both above and below the saltwater.
