As a result of recent Waitangi Treaty settlement this Bay has had its official name changed to a joint name - Oraumoa / Fighting Bay
Fighting Bay is the location of the main transmission station for the power lines that run through the Cook Strait.
This is a strict no anchoring zone but can be visited. No fishing is permitted in this bay.
At either side of the entrance to the bay are warning signs: Please read these and abide by the regulations.
