The Bay of Islands offers Northlands most scenic landscape, above & below sea level

The Bay of Islands was the first area colonized by European settlers. It has a huge amount of Maori and European history with the Treaty of Waitangi being signed at Waitangi in 1840.  

Below the water we have a unique environment. The Cape Brett Peninsula is washed with the East Auckland Current. This is a branch of the East Australian Current and brings tropical fish to a temperate zone. We see fish like Lord Howe Coralfish, Gold Ribbon Grouper, and Toadstool Grouper. We are also lucky that we get Stingrays breeding in our caves and archways. During the summer months large schools of fish can be seen feeding on the surface around the Hole in the Rock. Deep Water Cove is now a marine reserve and has an abundant amount of fish life inhabiting the wreck of the Canterbury.
