Nelson Leader : March 26th 2015
32 THE NELSON LEADER, MARCH 26, 2015 Chance to see what’s under sea T he opportunity to put on a snorkel and find out what’s under the water near one of Tasman Bay’s marine reserves is happening again at Cable Bay on Sunday. There are two marine reserves in Tasman Bay: Horoirangi Marine Reserve between Glenduan and Cable Bay, and Tonga Island Marine Reserve in the Abel Tasman National Park. Experiencing Marine Reserves, the Department of Conservation and Nelson Underwater Club have come together to provide free 30 minute snorkelling tours at Cable Bay, near Horoirangi Marine Reserve, between 10am and 1pm on Sunday March 29. This Seaweek event is supported by Port Nelson and fits this year’s theme: Look beneath the surface, papatai o roto – papatai o raro. Megan Wilson, Co-ordinator of Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) said this was a wonderful opportunity for people to experience these treasures in our local marine environment up close. ‘‘There is so much happening under the water in our own backyard that many people do not know about. ‘‘This event gives everyone a chance to get out into our local marine environment and look beneath the surface for themselves.’’ People may bring their own gear to the free event if they have it, or bring a gold coin donation to have all equipment provided (wetsuit, mask, snorkel and fins). Nelson Underwater Club is pro- viding experienced snorkelling guides and safety boats. Close encounter: Stew Robertson, left, with a starfish and Stephanie Millar at the Seaweek Snorkel Day at Cable Bay. Participants must be seven years and over. Just turn up any time from 10am to 1pm to register for a guided snorkel.
