Dr. James, Epic Explorer

Her job is an underwater archaeologist, which means she often dives underwater to explore shipwrecks and other submerged sites. She loves discovering shipwrecks as they show a preserved point in history when the shipwreck happened. There are over 2,500 shipwrecks in Aotearoa New Zealand’s waters, with only around 200 that have been accurately located. Dr James is determined to find the rest!

Brian & Sally

Brian is the handy-man that can fix anything! He looks after all the ships at the Maritime Museum making sure they are all in working order, as well as keeping the museum's marina free from rubbish using a pool skimmer. You won't see Brian without his handy helper Sally the Seagull. She is his eyes in the sky search for stray rubbish in the marina and she also makes sure Brian is looked after and well fed, though she keeps all the hot chips to herself.
