Good luck pop!

Bay of Islands is where my Brother-in-Law used to keep his yacht when he was in NZ. Beautiful place.

All the best to you and your family.

Nice camp site there stayed for about a week but no waves tipical..

Got Ragland like a dream but packed out.

I really liked Taranaki around New Plymouth, some really nice spots.

Spent Xmass on Great Barrier Island thats a great place, have a great time.

yer the campsite is perfect location for a good surf in the morning, as long as the bull sharks are not over 4ft im in

on the way up from Auckland i will go out to great barrier island and then up to the mokahino islands, the poor knights and cape brett. i have done this trip 3 times on riviera 55 but this time its a sleeping bag and the deck, should be fun i cant wait to get a burger from that little van at the harbour wall on great barrier. mmmmmmmmmmmm

if you are in the bay give us a shout would be good to go for a surf

quote [its amazing for boating]

Sure is - maybe one of the best cruising areas anywhere. As a expat Kiwi, it's the thing I miss most about NZ. Lots of islands, quiet and private anchorages - extensive costal cruising and challenging places to go offshore if you are so inclined.

My dad sometimes leaves his yacht in the BoI over summer so I'll get him to keep a lookout for you.

Enjoy
