We decided to name our boats and our excursions after the many beautiful seabirds that make the Hauraki Gulf home.
Oi is a favourite seabird that we have enjoyed watching during many family sailing trips and yacht races.
Oi is the Maori name for the Grey Faced Petrel.
There is a breeding area near Tiri Tiri Matangi Island which is North East of Waiheke Island and they can be seen soaring over the waves towards Little Barrier Island.
Ask your skipper for more information on Oi
