More introductory guided walks to the Sisters' Islands Marine Park have been added.
In addition to the guided walks in August which have been fully taken up, more have been added till the end of the year.
Each guided walk which lasts about two and a half hours, will take up to 15 visitors.
The groups, led by trained volunteer guides, are kept small so as not to harm the marine life.
Those who are interested are encouraged to sign up a month before the tour and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
