Bay of Islands Marina, Opua is a full service facility currently offering 250 berths. A further 150 berths are being added and will be available in late 2016. Located in the beautiful Bay of Islands, New Zealand's premier recreational maritime destination, it is also New Zealand's main port of entry, clearing over 430 boats a year, with customs and quarantine staff permanently located at the marina. The marina has a full service marine park and boatyard. Opua is 5 minutes by road to Paihia, the heart of the Bay of Islands. It is 20 minutes from Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands Airport, and just a short water crossing to historic Russell.
