The temperate waters of Patterson Inlet are host to a rich and unique Kelp Forest Ecosystem. Due to the sheltered and nutrient rich waters, there are over 260 species of native seaweed. Within these kelp forests live a multitude of different marine organisms.
Usually, we head to the coastline of Ulva Island, into the Te Wharawhara Marine Reserve. These are 3 reserves totalling 1075 hectares.
Our locations differ depending on the weather, but we have many different wonderful spots for different wind angles, ensuring we can find a calm, sheltered bay in most conditions.
For longer tours and charter tours we can head further afield, to other parts of the Rakiura Coastlines.
