An early morning water taxi ride through the montage of islands to the edge of the bay and Cape Brett peninsula. Scramble ashore at the Old Landing, step by step up to the last lighthouse keepers house. Hear the stories as you settle in for a hard climb up past the lighthouse, with many photo stops along the way. Once cresting the last of many teasing peaks navigate your way through salt burnt tussock country, windswept stunted Manuka and glimpses of mature forest for a well-earned lunch break looking back over your trail.

Re energised wander down through significant canopy forests, evidence of Maori habitation before descending to the old fishing village of Deep Water Cove and your water taxi ride home to Russell. This is the perfect walk to do in a group, as with the 2 water taxis involved a group option is very cost effective.
