The search is continuing for two teenagers and their instructor who went missing off the coast of New Plymouth on Wednesday.
Bryce Jourdain, 42, Joao Felipe Martins De Melo and Stephen Lewis Kahukaka-Gedye, both 17, have not been seen since a rock-climbing adventure at Paritutu Rock went wrong.
Incident controller Inspector Frank Grant said in a statement on Sunday that the search for the trio was continuing.
"We have Taranaki Surf Lifesaving inflatable rescue boats out on the water again today," he said.
"Police staff in kayaks are also searching near the port area."
A small group was also checking the shoreline from Tapawai to Bell Block.
"We're assessing the situation daily and are doing all we can to bring the bodies of Bryce, Stephen and Felipe home.
"We're continuing to provide support and assistance to the families at this tragic time."
He also praised the "huge" support from Taranaki residents, especially those who had helped with the search.
The missing were part of a group comprising 11 Spotswood College students and two instructors from the Taranaki Outdoor Pursuits and Education Centre.
