Opua is located in the Bay of Islands, in the sub-tropical Northland region of New Zealand. It is notable as the first port for overseas yachts arriving in the country after crossing the Pacific Ocean.
It is a popular destination for cruising yachts owing to its sheltered, deep water anchorage, and numerous facilities for cruisers, including the 250-berth Opua Marina, Ashby's Boatyard and Opua Cruising Club. more
On the wharf, a number of charter companies offer yachts you can sail yourself.
