A trip to discover Ocean adventures!

Picture 9

Last weekend we took a trip to the New Zealand Marine Studies Centre out in Portobello. We went there to film and record some sound so we could start making a really cool podcast just for you guys (stay tuned – well make sure you can listen to it soon)!

While we were there we saw and learnt about seahorses, heaps of different fish, and even got to go in a submarine!!! It’s a really great place to go and visit any time of the year, so check their website out here for details.
