Navy Warship HMNZS OTAGO Tour

HMNZS Otago was open to visitors as part of the Ports of Auckland Seeport Open Day, celebrating Auckland Anniversary Weekend and the 175th anniversary of Auckland City.

Navy Warship, HMNZS OTAGO, Open to the PublicThe OPVs enable the RNZN to conduct long range maritime patrol, surveillance, and operational activity around New Zealand, the Southern Ocean and into the Pacific. They are versatile vessels capable of multi-agency operations in support of regional security tasks.
