The first Hine Moana young women's programme set off this morning in beautiful calm paddling conditions. They will spend 2.5 days exploring the waterways if the Mahurangi region, with an exciting talk from @redznzjourney tomorrow afternoon. Then @nz_sailingtrust will sail up and collect the rangatahi and they learn to sail the famous yacht safely back to Tamaki Makaurau, Auckland. They were excited and we can't wait to hear the stories at the end of the week @dukeofednz @visitauckland
Wētāpunga - Out paddling in the Hauraki Gulf we spotted a  beautiful Wētāpunga on one of the off shore pest free islands . Adult wētāpunga are the heaviest insects on the  planet, heavier than an average house sparrow. #stilllearning

Another great event organized by @emr_nz at Taumanu Reserve, Onehunga. Participants learned about local wildlife and conservation projects. We explored mangroves and what makes this harbour so special. Thanks EMR for including us 📷by EMR with @backcountryweb doing his thing
Kayak instruction with a different view today. Westhaven beach is right in the heart of Auckland and has a unique view looking back over the city and sky tower. The water is nearly always flat and you can paddle right under the harbour bridge for a bit of excitement @visitauckland
Just arrived at Motuora island which is our home for the night. We are out with a local high school exploring their local area.  It was a fun down wind paddle from the mainland with loads of waves to surf #outdooreducation  #doc @visitauckland
