Bay of Islands travel guide

World-renowned place for big-game fishing, the subtropical microregion of Bay of Islands has enjoyed fame ever since the adventure novelist Zane Grey released "Tales of the Angler's El Dorado, New Zealand" in the 1930s. Your own Bay of Islands trip can be as adventurous as you like, with great opportunities for spotting whales, dolphins, marlins, and penguins, as well as popular dive spots. Don't forget to turn your gaze upward from the abundant sea: the sky here is the second-bluest in the word, according to a scientific study conducted early in the 21st century. The bay's many islands have great hiking trails, and long sandy beaches stretch along the coves and inlets on the mainland.
