Snorkeling The Goat Island Marine Reserve

One of the Top 10 places to visit near Auckland.

The Reserve is a fantastic place for the whole family, a stunning beach, coastal walks and amazing fun in the water. Snorkeling at Goat Island is like going back in time, it is untouched and teaming with life. The Marine Reserve supports a vast array of fish species with giant snapper (some over 60 years old!), sunbathing eagle rays warming in the shallows, large schools of smaller fish and ancient crayfish hiding in the rocks.

Snorkeling at Goat Island is a must do for any experience level; for those experiencing the water for the first time to seasoned divers, there is something for everyone!
