Exploring what's under the water can feel like traveling to a new planet. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the underwater world with a snorkel guide and discover the amazing creatures living in the coastal waters close to Porirua. If you’re lucky you might even spot a sea horse! Fun for the whole whānau.
