Te Kaha's new role with a US Seventh Fleet carrier strike group is underway, with a call into Guam for a short visit. Being part of a carrier strike group doesn't come around that often and will certainly enhance the interoperability between our Navies - and provide a chance to give back after the US helped New Zealand in Kaikoura.

WATCH || Not something you see every day! Some of the things you see when on deployment can be a chance in a lifetime. This footage was taken on board HMNZS Te Kaha showing Nishi-no-Shima Island located near Tokyo. As the Ship passed by the volcano glowed large in the binoculars of the Bridge staff with large plumes of lava spewing high into the air. What a sight!

HMNZS Otago caught their two vessels, Da Yang 15 and Da Yang 16, fishing without a licence during joint...

So it was last week with HMNZS Otago. Under the watchful eye of the Maritime Operations Evaluation Team, the crew underwent multiple Work-Up exercises in Damage Control, Search and Rescue, engine failures, gunnery and coming...
