Wellington Harbour

The sight of multicoloured sails scudding across the water should convince you Wellington is at its best when seen from the water. Wellington Harbour offers some excellent water-based activities (see Wellington tours and activities) that can help you do so, although at the time of writing there were very few sailing opportunities. However, you can hop on the ferry to Matiu/Somes Island, isolated in the harbour’s northern reaches, for a good look around.
