The area is home to a huge number of activities, from lounging on boats cruising around the various islands, to scenic helicopter or fixed wing flights.

Many of the activities are focused on or in the water. If you fancy a go at Kayaking then try Island Kayaks (http://www.acb.co.nz/kayaks/) based next to the Pipi Patch (http://www.acb.co.nz/pipi-patch/).

You can also take a catamaran trip around the bay and see the dolphins! They are right at the prow of the vessel and love to play. There is also the opportunity to swim with them.
