ABOUT M.B.F.C.

90 minutes north of the harbour bridge and less than an hour south of Whangarei on the east coast, Mangawhai is a truly awesome place for boating and fishing.

The Mangawhai Boating & Fishing Club was first established in 1966, and in 1998 affiliated to the NZBGFC (now the NZ Sport Fishing Council Inc).

The harbour offers 2 boat ramps for easy launching and sufficient parking for trailers although maximum capacity if often reached in the height of summer. Either stay within the safety of the harbour to partake in your boating activities or if conditions permit, cross the Mangawhai Bar with care and the choices are plentiful.

 

Within the hour you can be in some great fishing & diving spots. Head north to access Langs and Bream Bay, south to explore Te Arai, or head out to the Hen & Chick’s or Sail Rock. Add another hour and you can access the bounty of the Mokohinau Islands or Little and Great Barrier Islands.

World class snapper, kahawai, yellowtail kingfish, swordfish and in summer months, game fish species like tuna, striped, blue and black marlin are all available in an easy day trip when conditions allow.

In calm conditions crossing the bar can be a breeze but like any bar crossing safety and care must be taken at all times. Read the information available at the boat ramp, talk to the locals and ask for advice, go in and see the staff at the local tackle shop or get in touch with our club.
