The trip across from Queens Wharf to Days Bay takes 25 minutes if a direct sailing, or 40 minutes if calling into Mātiu/Somes Island. On the trip out, you will have great views back to Wellington City and really get a feel for what makes Wellington and its harbour, Te Whanganui-a-Tara, surrounds so special. Mātiu/Somes Island is steeped in local history, from early Māori settlement to a prisoner of war camp, and quarantine station. Now a nature reserve, the birdlife is amazing and you may even be lucky enough to see the native tuatara that have been reintroduced to the island. Days Bay is a seaside town in Wellington harbour and is home to popular beaches, bush walks, art galleries and beach front dining options.
