Anchors Aweigh

The new Marsden Cove Marina is a luxurious full service port of entry, and a welcome addition to New Zealand’s  Whangarei Harbour. “The area is a cruising ground to pine for,” with twenty three kilometre long Bream Bay Beach, nearby Hen and Chicken Islands, and the scuba diving hotspot, Poor Knights Marine Reserve. The harbor is home to the deep-water port that acts as the main shipping artery for the region, freckled with small coastal towns and line by beautiful beaches. Marsden Cove marina, just inside the entrance to the harbor, is its newest gateway, 230 berths big, equipped with an in-house customs dock and backed by a waterfront boulevard that is home to specialized retail shops, cafes, and restaurants.
