The Marlin of Whangaroa is the ideal base for everything Whangaroa and the Far North has to offer, from fishing and sailing to land-based activities and exploring the local area. Our team can give you all the advice you need to make the most of your stay. This includes information on local attractions, recommendations for activity and tour operators, and directions to help you get to where you want to go.

A particular favorite of many of our guests is marlin fishing because the harbor is so close to marlin fishing grounds. If this is something you’d like to do, we can help you make the arrangements. In addition, The Marlin of Whangaroa operates a 52-foot sailing ketch from Whangaroa Harbour for sailing charters.
