One of the most notable features of the Bay of Islands area is the distinctly dark and round body of water we called the Deep Blue Lake. Below, an interactive map of the area.
Its color stems from it being very deep (and as thus far as we’re concerned not a suitable anchorage). This doesn’t mean that it wasn’t worth exploring, though. The perimeter had some vividly-colored water amidst its offshore motus, more hidden worlds of beauty to discover. –Cyndi
