Experiencing Marine Reserves runs a series of free and subsidised events over the summer months - we rely on your support to make them happen. We appreciate donations to participate, either cash on the day, online or by giving a koha of your time volunteering at a future event. Most people donate $5-10pp.


As this is a free event - if you can no longer attend after registering you need to give us at least 24 hours notice. If we have less than 24 hrs notice or a no show we will be issuing a $15pp invoice, as people will miss out on the opportunity to explore the marine environment with us.
