Opua MarinaBay of Islands, New Zealand
Opua Marina consists of 250 berths ranging in sizes from 10.5 metres to 27 metres. View the Berth Plan.
There are 35 swing moorings and 14 pile moorings available outside the marina breakwater for long or short term rental.
All marina berths are equipped with four mooring lines, water and power.
Security keys are needed for all piers and facilities - available from the Marina Office for a fully refundable $20.00 deposit; gates to piers are open during daylight hours and locked at dusk – so don’t forget your key!
Short and long term rentals, and live a-boards are welcomed.
The Marina is a No Discharge Zone and everyone must comply with this rule. Security checks are conducted to ensure that diverter or thru hull have been locked.
Bay of Islands has a No Discharge policy and a zero tolerance for offenders. Please respect our pristine cruising grounds and use our free pump out facilities provided by the marina and on each of the wharf berths. The pump out facility is located on the fuel dock and is self-serve - available 24/7. See details on the NRC website.
Opua Marina is able to arrange rentals, on short notice, via VHF Channel 12
