Bay Week Beach Party to return in 2019

Yes that’s right folks – the much-loved Bay Week Beach Party will return in 2019, thanks to the good folks at Explore and Otehei Bay. YAY!

The Explore Beach Party will be happening on Thursday evening at Otehei Bay, with a ferry out to Urupukapuka Island departing Opua after racing concludes for the day, with pick-ups at Paihia and Russell along the way, returning later in the evening. Ferry tickets are just $10 per person return – a massive saving on the usual rate exclusively for BOISW participants and company.

Bring your family and friends along to the Explore Beach Party for an evening of live music, good vibes, sausage sizzle and fully licensed cafe and bar service at beautiful Otehei Bay beach.

We’d appreciate your early booking to get an idea of numbers for the ferry, so please book now!
