Response from FerryBackpackers, Owner at Ferry Landing HomestayResponded 19 March 2016

Thank you for such a glowing review! We too enjoyed having you stay. We always have such nice guests! - Andrea

Watch the harbour activities and ever changing vista from the deck of our clean and comfortable accommodation. We are situated just above the car ferry on the Russell side of the Opua harbour. Simply More drive off the Opua/Okiato car ferry and up our driveway. We are 8km from the Russell Village. Okiato Point, Russell was the very 1st Capital of NZ & is an ideal base to check out the historical sites around the Bay of Islands area. Go sailing, kayaking, fishing, hiking and swimming. You can cross the harbour by ferry & dine at the local cafes of Opua. The area offers diving, parasailing, swim with the dolphins and much much more. Less
