north cape new zealand

And what is typical for the northernmost point of New Zealand? It is generally considered the separation marker between the Tasman Sea to the West and the Pacific Ocean to the East. Have a closer look at the photo and you will see how the two seas clash and create unsettled waters (there is a colour difference too). The Māori refer to this as the meeting of Rehua and Whitirea; being a male and a female respectively.
