Bay of Islands Exploration with Colwyn with Colwyn




Colwyn is a true local to the Bay of Islands. As a descendant from the area he has an in-depth knowledge that can never be learned from a book and has a passion for Maori culture and history which is prominent in Ipipiri (Bay of Islands). He was a local policeman (be good or he will lock you up in the little historic Russell jail) and is a civil marriage celebrant. He has represented New Zealand in sports and truly enjoys sharing his two greatest passions with guests; Maori culture and fishing. He will quickly become a friend for life so leave him a space on the Christmas card list.
