Bay of Islands Marina

Bay of Islands Marina is a full service, 400-berth facility on the threshold of one of New Zealand’s premier marine playgrounds.


It’s an ideal place to call home. Rest and recharge in this peaceful spot with your boat safely tucked into a world-class marina facility, protected from the ocean swells by the 144 island gems that give the bay its name.


Bay of Islands Marina is in Port Opua, the primary port of entry to New Zealand for yachties arriving in New Zealand from the Pacific. It boasts a safe, well-marked and easy approach by both day and night, with customs and quarantine berths conveniently situated on the outer breakwater of the marina.


Recently expanded, the marina has a range of berths available for both long and short-term lease. There are hot showers, pump-out facilities, a diesel fuel dock, wi-fi and postal services, and live-aboards are very welcome (subject to capacity).


The adjacent Port Opua Marina Park is home to a wide array of marine services – all within walking distance. These include travel lift haul-out and hardstand, catamaran haul-out, boat builders and riggers, painters, refrigeration, mechanics, electronics, chandlery, car hire, insurance and boat brokers, storage facilities, a laundry and a café.


Opua is located five minutes by road from Paihia, the heart of the Bay of Islands. It is 20 minutes from Kerikeri and Bay of Islands Airport, and just a short water crossing from historic Russell.


Our friendly marina staff are just a call away. Or simply pop into the marina office for all the help and advice you need about your new port of call.
