Please note:

Over winter 2019 (May - August) the Otehei Bay Wharf is being dismantled and rebuilt. Please note that because the wharf is out of service, we must transfer guests from the boat via a barge to the beach. This transfer is not suitable for wheelchairs, passengers with mobility issues, strollers or pushchairs, and young children to be in care of an adult.
