Working at Te Ohu Kaimoana is a perfect fit for Te Maire as she has a natural affinity to Tangaroa me ngā uri a Hinemoana. In her spare time, you will often find Te Maire planning return trips home to Te Tai Tokerau, gathering maitai with finesse, or utilising her open water certificate to say “kia ora” to the odd shark.
