Green Bay

This bay gives no shelter in prevailing W to N winds. It has calm water in N to S winds but in strong SE to S the wind funnels out of it with considerable force. 

Green Bay is open to the ferry wash.

There are some holiday batches with private jetties and moorings. Water taxis drop people off to camp at Curious Cove. 

History

This bay may have originally been known by the name, Ōhaupō, which means night wind.1
