This small marine reserve (16 ha) has been created as an educational site because of its accessibility, variety of habitats, and simple beauty. This is one of the best places to see Hector dolphins without the need for a boat.
Protect our marine reserves
  • No fishing of any kind.
  • Don't take or kill marine life.
  • Don't remove or disturb any marine life or materials.
  • Don't feed fish - it disturbs their natural behaviour.
  • Take care when anchoring to avoid damaging the sea floor.
