Heading down to Shipwreck Bay

Houhora Big Game Fishing Club

After the top of NZ, we headed back down Ninety Mile beach, stopping off at the big game fishing club in Houhora to gawp at the massive Marlin and Tuna. Over the weekend at Shipwreck Bay we got to know the two European America’s cup teams, as they pulled up along side us with their families for one of their weekends off.
The walk around the rocks has road signs for cars that and plenty of crab as road kill. I found a huge metallic-blue Abalone shell on the beach; "Paua’s” they call them here and they grow to the size of dinner plates.
