It's a Fact...
CLOUDY WATERS
Named in 1770 by Captain James Cook for the cloudy waters created by the outflow of three rivers, the Wairau, Taylor and Opawa, Cloudy Bay is bordered by Port Underwood and Robertson Point to the north and White Bluffs to the south. In pre-European and early colonial New Zealand, one of the South Island's largest Maori settlements was close to the mouth of the Wairau and the shores of Cloudy Bay.
