Cruising North Island New Zealand

New Zealand’s North Island is a cruiser’s paradise. It’s world famous Bay of Islands in Opua, Waiheke Island, Great Barrier Island, Rangitoto and other spectacular spots take you all the way south to Cook’s Strait. Those who are brave and looking for even more adventure may even circumnavigate all of New Zealand.

As for the Dazzler Crew, we’ve been a bit land locked since we came here in 2018. Refits and upgrades to Dazzler as well as “land cruising” have been our priority. For now we can only provide a bit of information on a couple of anchorages around Whangerie Heads area. Please check back though because as Summer arrives here in 2020 we will be doing a lot more sailing and will provide you with a whole lot more information on cruising New Zealand.
