Pohatu which was established in 1999 and the Akaroa Marine Reserve which was only finalised in 2014. The reserves provide a fantastic platform for marine education. We were lucky enough to see a jumping thresher shark, hectors dolphins, regenerating paua, blue moki and got to swim with many seals on Canterbury's most stunning coastline. We dont have a programme up and going in this region yet, but we are planning to run a Community Guided Snorkel Day in Kaikoura in late 2017 or 2018.
