Bay of Islands Marina


Far North Holdings Limited manages and operates the Bay of Islands Marina. 


This full service, 400-berth facility is the primary port of entry to New Zealand for yachties arriving in New Zealand from the Pacific. It boasts a safe, well-marked and easy approach by both day and night, with customs and quarantine berths conveniently situated on the outer breakwater of the marina.

Bay of Islands Marina has raised environmental standards right across the NZ marina industry through the creation and management of non-discharge areas, and spearheading the Clean Boating Programme.

FNHL holds Customs Place of First Arrival Authority for Port Opua under the New Zealand Customs & Excise Act (1996). This enables overseas cruising yachts to clear Customs at Opua, providing a considerable commercial boost to boating service providers, restaurants, retailers and tourism operators – not only in Opua but also in surrounding towns such as Paihia and Kerikeri.

We also hold MPI (Ministry for Primary Industries) Place of First Arrival Authority for Bay of Islands Airport under the BioSecurity Act (1993) and we are integrated with Customs arrival and clearance services. This MPI status also supports environmental management practices in Opua.
