That whole harbour is a forgotten area. Lots of options around that area. Whenever we go there apart from long weekends there is hardly anyone there, maybe haif a dozen boats.

Thanks for all the replies! I think that Mahurangi/Kawau area is definitely looking like the go. If you see Pork Chop out there in January come over and say hi :)

Just had our first day here. What a cool place. After grabbing the boat from addem at sandspit (a very unfriendly marina imo) we shot over to martins bay to sort out the campground with the mrs. I managed to con a mate into coming with his grandson and had another young fulla join us. Its been great having all the kids and they have been getting on well.

With the boring stuff out of the way we decided to cruise over to beehive island for a nosy. The kids were dreaming up extreme survival island scenarios while we were just looking forward to getting them off the boat. They got scratched up as getting to the top but were stoked to have conquered the island. We have come back to the bay and are now playing cards and chilling out.

You let them climb up The Beehive and none got bitten by katipo spiders?

 The skipper will whisk you past Beehive Island (where the sting is more likely to come from the plentiful Katipo spiders residing there

 

 

I always thought it was false until I read this and Yes the spider is now protected.

Ha. I had it from a friend that it was a great place to take kids and that his kids used to love it. No bites thankfully but looks like that will be a one off visit.

My wife's seasickness has been severly limiting but we have managed to get to motuketekete for a chillaxed swim and then yesterday went to mansion house bay for an explore.

We even managed to drop off the 3yo and wife and had a nice sail with the 3 older kids around motuora. For one of them it was their first time sailing which was a bit of a laugh. He mept asking if we were going to tip right over

With the winds forecast we have tucked into mahurangi harbour and will chill out here for a while. So far we have a not upset mrs and 4 kids who are having a great time. A success as far as im concerned.
