On Northland's east coast between Whangarei and Mangawhai, Waipu has the entire Bream Bay on its doorstep.

Waipu - excellent fishing on our doorstep - Waipu Boat & Fishing ClubA 30-minute drive from either Whangarei or Mangawhai will get you to Waipu, where the fishing is good and the scenery is even better.

Whether you're fishing for sprats with the kids on the river, hunting for flounder in the estuary, heading out from Marsden Cove Marina or over the Waipu bar into Bream Bay, or fishing off the rocks at Langs Beach, there are excellent fishing spots within easy reach.

While the famous Hen and Chicks and Sail Rock are a short boat ride away, Waipu locals know you don't need to go that far.
