The trip across from Queens Wharf to Days Bay takes 20 minutes if a direct sailing, or 30 minutes if calling into Matiu 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 surrounds so special.
Matiu Somes Island is steeped in local history, from early Maori 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.
