Just three hours north of Auckland lies 144 unspoiled sub-tropical islands and a myriad of secluded beaches. These are world renowned for game fishing and abundant marine life including wild dolphins, penguins and occasionally Orca. The islands have many examples of the area's rich Maori history. The calm waters, sandy beaches and exhilarating scenery, makes it obvious first choice for international sailing yachts as well as Kiwi holiday makers. This natural beauty of the Bay of Islands has to be seen to be believed and shouldn't be rushed.
