Wellington Bay is situated at the eastern side of Tory Channel, where the Inter-island Ferries make landfall with New Zealand's South Island. 100 meter high rock. NZ cliffs surround the bay. This is a very dramatic area and offers many sea caves, arches and undulating kelp covered reefs. Due to its Cook Straight location the sea-life and bottom topography is quite different to other sites, with fish species such as Arrow Squid, Octopus, Mullet, Abalone and Mackerel, being common. The area can be subject to current at certain times of the day, but is suitable for all levels of experience as long as a guide is used.
