New Zealand destinations
Alan & Jan welcome you to Marlin Ridge. Located in one of New Zealand's most stunning coastal areas we are conveniently located, overlooking the marina with spectacular views down the harbour and out to sea. A stroll down the hill brings you to the Tutukaka Marina where you can hop on a charter boat and enjoy a wonderful day exploring the Poor Knight Islands. Or stroll to your choice of cafe for a relaxing lunch or evening meal. Watch the stingray as they cruise around the marina.
Tutukaka is north east of Whangarei - just 2.5 hours drive from Auckland and only 20 minutes from the Whangarei city centre. Offshore from Tutukaka Marina lie the Poor Knight Islands, a world-renowned marine reserve and an underwater treasure trove for divers and explorers. The bustling marina is home to private launches, and charter boats are available for diving expeditions or a spot of fishing
