Whangaroa is one of Northland's earliest settled areas. One of the first immigrant Maori canoes touched shore at Whangaroa, and Europeans had been sheltering in the Harbour back in the 1790s. In the 1809 the ship 'Boyd' sailed into Whangaroa seeking Kauri Spars. She ancohored off Peach Island and through a series of misadventures, was set alight and then drifted up the Harbour and sank near Red Islands.
Fourteen years later in 1823 Samuel Leigh with William White and others, came to Whangaroa and up the Kaeo River to establish the first Wesleyan Mission Station in New Zealand. The Harbour was created by volcanic activity and the dramatic towering cliff faces, waterfalls and coves offer spectacular scenery that can only be seen from a boat.
Fishing is a 'religion' around here as the Whangaroa township is known as 'Marlin Capital' of New Zealand. The Whangaroa Big Gamefish Clubrooms, situated over the waters edge in the township, have an outstanding display of fishing memorabilia and many fibreglass mounts of game fish.
Whangaroa is within easy reach of some of New Zealand's Finest fishing grounds including: - Ruahine Reef - Cavalli Islands
Whangaroa can provide fishers with a range of other species including:- Kingfish - Snapper - Kahawai - Trevally - Cod - Groper - John Dory.
Harbour Fishing from a Safe Small Boat is rewarding during the months of September to January when the Snappers enter the Harbour to spawn. But John Dory - Kahawai - Snapper (in smaller numbers) and Kingfish are present just about al year round
