The Bay of Islands is an excellent launching ground for the east coast of Northland New Zealand. Depending on the time you make available, for sailing vacations of a week or more, we recommend visiting Whangaroa Harbour to the north and perhaps making it all the way south to Auckland. We're happy to allow you to do a one way adventure down to Auckland.
Don't cut your time short in our amazing aquatic country. There is so much to visit and so many islands and natural harbours to amaze you.
