New Zealand's Poor Knights Islands: summer synopsis
Colin posted a topic in Trip Reports and Travelhttps://vimeo.com/89280331 The starry toado (pufferfish) baitball encounters are rarely captured - these open water visitors don't last long after being blown in by easterly winds as snapper quickly decimate them. Rikoriko cave is claimed to be the world's largest sea cave - by volume. Northern Arch, known for its squadrons of sting rays soaring the currents. Middle Arch, another of the many arches which contribute to making this island group such a visual feast. And to think that if this had not become protected over 30 years ago there would be little left to experience of the amazing moving window of marine life. Enjoy, Colin
