Otehei Bay Ferry Locals Pass

We think you should explore your own backyard first and if you are lucky enough to live in Northland you have a pretty spectacular backyard!

We can highly recommend a day on the island to explore the sandy bays, dramatic clifftop lookouts and abundant wildlife and we want to get you out for less - because we are locals too.

Sign up here for access to our special local prices and updates on all our island activities and events.

Please note locals rates do not apply to ticketed special events including Christmas Lunch and New Years Eve
