The Landing has recently welcomed a new boat to its fleet; an 8.8 metre vessel built by Dickey Boats called Iti Rangi.
The coastal setting of The Landing signifies much more than just a location; it provides us with the unique opportunity to showcase the land-to-sea experience that makes this part of the world so special. Dedicated skipper Brett Michalick is on hand to offer guests the full experience aboard Iti Rangi, whether it be fishing, sightseeing or dolphin-watching trips or a leisurely explore of different locations in and around the Bay of Islands. Guests are able to enjoy several special spots accessible by water: nearby historical landmark Marsden Cross, Russell with its excellent restaurants or the stunning Waitangi Museum.
Iti is the Maori word for small, and Rangi is Maori for the heavens or sky. Iti Rangi could easily be interpreted as a little bit of heaven and it isn’t hard to find at sea – finish the day with a freshly caught fish, prepared by personal chef Jackie, and a bottle of The Landing wine… and you’re probably getting pretty close.
