Whangaroa Sport Fishing Club


The Whangaroa area is steeped in history and rich in legends. To those that have discovered its secrets it is also known as 'The Jewel of the North', 'Marlin Country', and a 'Fisherman's Paradise'.
The towering cliff faces and deep water sheltered coves and inlets of Whangaroa Harbour offer perfect anchorages for a spot of fishing. Pipis, Scallops and Oysters are plentiful in the harbour with an abundance of Crayfish outside. The Cavalli Islands nearby are renowned for world class Gamefishing.

The Whangaroa Sport Fishing Club is situated in the picturesque township of Whangaroa, Northland, New Zealand and is host to many fishing tournaments throughout the year. It is also a great spot to soak up the atmosphere of this magnificent, historic harbour.
