Paddock Rocks

Paddock Rocks close off the southern end of the bay. These straggle in an area from the shore for nearly two miles and some are nearly 30 m high. There are various passages through the rocks but none are recommended without local knowledge. The safest passage into Manuhakapakapa from French Pass is to head first to Chicots and then due north so as to enter between Paddock Rocks and Hapuka Island.
