Look beneath the surface during Seaweek

Book cover of The Power of the SeaKiwis love the sea and luckily we have a chance to properly celebrate it every year with Seaweek. The theme for Seaweek this year is "Look beneath the surface – Papatai ō roto – Papatai ō raro".

There are lots of Seaweek events that Cantabrians can head along to:
