Whangaroa Harbour Northland NZ, is a magnificent picturesque inland harbour with a relaxed fishing village atmosphere. Protected by dramatic rock formations, the harbour offers all weather boating, kayaking, and fishing. Dolphin sightings from Waimanu Lodge are not infrequent. We have even seen a pod of Orca (killer whales) on one occasion.

A truly majestic place, positioned 30km north of Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands and a short trip by boat to the beautiful Cavalli Islands.


  • Kayaking, snapper fishing, Game Fishing Charters, Diving Charters, Harbour Cruises and Guided Eco Walks are all available in Whangaroa.
  • The renowned St Pauls walk, with it's magnificent harbour views is right on our doorstep.
  • Your hosts would be happy to help you arrange any of these activities.
