We did the North Totara walk and the water taxi picked us up. The guys knows a lot of the history of the place and it's well worth the $20 to get back to base.

We spent a day with friends, sailing the harbour and surrounding bays. The scenery around this area is wonderful and even some rain showers added to the spectacle. Sadly our fishing attempts were unsuccessful but a wonderful day was enjoyed by us.

Despite the unusually damp weather for this time of year, the natural beauty of the area shone through: pure nature in all it's glory. If you're doubtful, check it out for yourself.

We had lunch yesterday at the newly refurbished Kingfish Lodge which was superb and very enjoyable for a party of seven. We arrived by our own boat but the Lodge has its own boat "Freedom" which they use to collect guests for a small fee from Whangaroa. Definitely worth a visit to enjoy the food and the spectacular scenery.

If you're heading for the Cape, I would recommend this as a stop over then you can head along the coast for great fish and chips!

Scenery is great, fishing is even better. Have visited this harbour many times and found the fishing to be great every time. Many nice safe boating spots for windy days.
