Recently the water around the Islands has been trying to clean up a little bit, with North Island having some clean 62-degree water at times, but South Island generally remaining dirty and off color green. Even in the clean water, though, there hasn’t been much sign of yellowtail – only a few bonito. Continue reading “Fish Report”

Local Gringo starts brewery and nails it

How’d you like to live in a bubble? You can now! The new Campera hotel located in the wine valley offers the experience of outdoor sleeping without any of the hassles. For this, they built 12 transparent spheres where the guests have a full bed, bathroom, heating and A/C.
