Where:
Pataua estuary, Pataua. We will set up our EMR trailer at Pataua South near the toilets – but if you are coming from the northern side just walk over the bridge!

In case you are not familiar with Pataua – the bridge connecting Pataua North and South is a foot bridge only, so you will need to pick the side that you are driving to before the start of your journey.

If you are coming from Whangarei or further south it’s probably easiest to drive to Pataua South, if you are coming from further north it may be best to drive to Pataua North!

Cost:
Koha – either by cash on the day, donate online or volunteer on one of our snorkel days. Most people donate $5-10 per person.

As this is a free event and requires registration – if you give less than 48 hours notice or do not show up an invoice of $20pp will be issued.
