In November 2019, the Tuia 250 flotilla will arrive in Tōtaranui/Queen Charlotte Sound.

The vessels include:
- Two waka hourua (double-hulled canoes) - the Haunui and Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti
- The Fa’afaite i te Ao Mā’ohi, a va’a moana from Tahiti.
- The HMB Endeavour replica from the Australian National Maritime Museum
and the Spirit of New Zealand.

A cultural welcome to the Tuia 250 flotilla, led by Tangata whenua iwi, will be held at Meretoto/Ship Cove - to acknowledge Meretoto as the site of the significant on-shore First Encounters between Māori and Pākehā at Tōtaranui.

Due to site restrictions, there is no public access to the reserve that day.
