Mangawhai Boating & Fishing Club

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 harbour offers 2 boat ramps for easy launching and parking for trailers.

Within 30 minutes you can be in the most wonderful fishing spots, including great coastal spots and the famous Hen & Chicken Islands, not to mention Sail Rock.

Add another hour and you will reach the Mokohinau Islands, once you have crossed the Mangawhai bar.
