Travel by commercial launch to Otehei Bay, getting a feel for the Bay of Islands as you venture into the inner islands where you will disembark at Urupukapuka Island. Urupukapuka Island has great historical archaeological significance and is the largest island in the Bay with spectacular views of the Bay of Islands. The forest holds treasures of Project Island Song. North Island Robin and Saddleback are the jewels amongst the abundant tui and fantail population. From sheltered bays, ancient pa, a wildlife hide and created wetland, climb through regenerating Manuka forest to scintillating views along the impressive seaward coastline, while tucking into your lunch. Looping around the island with one view to Zane Grey’s campsite and the other out to the waters he fished, return for some refreshment from the restaurant before catching your vessel back to Russell.
