    Sea Ranching

Guide Bio

I see a future where mankind knows and understands his innate inter-connectedness with nature. Knowing this, he begins to act in life affirming ways.

Through involvement with sea ranching (reef building) one is able to experience this sense of oneness.

As an educator by profession and knowing the power of experiential learning, I see my role as a guide to set the stage with experiences so that you can see with your own eyes, understand for yourself, and know in your own heart.

It’s that moment of ‘ah ha, now I understand’ that brings me satisfaction.

Astronauts have termed it an ‘overview experience’. I call it marine oneness.


REAF (sea ranching) and The Wharf Hub (accommodation) co-exist on the same property in Opotiki, Eastern Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. Established in 2007, its a unique venture to promote the concept of mankind working with nature to create abundance. If the sea dies, then a part of us dies too. Fish stocks decline despite best scientific management. Could there be other factors at work? Experience our interactive workshops and decide for your self.

Thank you for submitting a review. It will be published shortly.
