Must do to see that magnificent Harbour
Jan 2020 • Friends
We thought it was too windy to go boating but there is always a sheltered spot on that Harbour. You have to see it-dynamic history, dramatic scenery and stunning nature. The crew were friendly, obliging and very knowledgeable. Loved it! Certainly the highlight of our stay at Whangaroa

Absolutely beautiful spot
Nov 2019 • Couples
Whangaroa Harbour is an amazingly beautiful part of Northland. You can access both sides, Totara North on the north side and Whangaroa on the south side on round to Tauranga Bay which is also beautiful.
There isn’t really any beach access inside the Harbour but the scenery is amazing, there is a walk up St Paul’s Rock and if you have access to the water then it can be fully experienced.

Kayaking on the harbor with Northland Outdoor Adventures was stunning! Like travelling beyond time in an untouched Jurassic Park,

Gorgeous harbour setting -the launchpad for experiences
Sep 2019
If you are a fishing fan, this is the marlin capital of NZ plus cruising, sailing, kayaking and snorkeling. The harbour has extraordinary rock formations, reminiscent of Thailand and Vietnam

Family search in Totara on the Whangaroa Harbour.
Mar 2019
We spent several days around this area and talked of our quest to find connections with family history. Very generous staff at Kaeo Museum pointed us to places we coukd visit and azt a café we were told of a man with a museum full of artefacts from the Lane mill at Totara who was subsequently thrilled to show us his collection. the Harbour was idyllic with plenty of boating entertainment. We had lunch at Gumdiggers Café and Bar at Totara the fresh fish caught that morning by our new friend at the museum DE-LicioUS. People were so friendly around this area it was hard to leave. we had a lovely coffee and cake at a small local café by the museum in Kaeo and purchased locally made lamb pies at the garage for tea. Yum. The bush honey was nice too. There were several tourist adventure activities both on land and the Harbour which looked quite exciting too.

Stunning view of the North
Apr 2019 • Family
Fantastic getaway for a quiet and relaxing break, just sit back and relax with the remarkable view. Must go place, great for fishing! You will pass Kaeo - small town with big spirit, worth to visit their "sandals fence"!

Stunningly beautiful
Apr 2018
OK, it has been three years since I was last there, but I have sailed and motored in and out of the harbor many times over the past 10 years and the scenic beauty never ceases to amaze me. I have taken three pelagic birding trips from the harbor to see the New Zealand Storm Petrel and other sea birds. It is a great base for pelagic birding. Fishing around the mouth of the harbor is great. Since we retired and no longer work in New Zealand, I will likely have to be satisfied with my memories.
