and 1.70 children. The groups interviewed were restricted to groups of less than 10 and were not necessarily in one car, however the adults per group was very close to the adults per car figure of 2.67. The children counted per car (0.82) therefore appears to be approximately half of the children present on the beach. I have therefore doubled the number of children counted per vehicle as shown in table one to give an approximate calibration figure of 4.3 people per car. This is also closely aligned to the 2002/3 CROP visitor survey where the average group size was 4.31 - no data on adult to children ratio was collected (note groups > 10 people were removed prior to calculating this figure to compare with the economic survey data as larger groups were assumed to come in > 1 vehicle).

An estimated 5000 trips per year across the counter are not visiting the marine reserve but heading to the University of Auckland Marine Lab. Although this accounts for approx 5 % of traffic the vehicles tend to carry one passenger. All vehicles were included in the calibration hence this 5 % with one passenger swayed the total passengers per car to the low side. Therefore the 5000 vehicles should be left in the count of visitors to the marine reserve. This over-count of about 5000 visitors probably covers the “on water visitors” (4-5 boats per day over the year with 3 passengers on average) which are otherwise not counted.
