Matiu-Somes Island




Matiu-Somes Island is the underatated jewell in Wellington Harbour. Full of history and now a wildlife sanctuary there is plenty to explore over the 2 days. Staying overnight allows us to hunt for penguins, tuataras and wetas at night and explore the island in peace the next morning.

We will be conducting an underwater clean up dive around the wharf and reporting any debris found to PADI AWARE. We also volunteer to conduct a beach or bush clean up for  DoC as required
