Private registered moorings
There are privately owned registered moorings in several of the harbours around Aotea Great Barrier Island’s coast
Moorings are located predominantly in Tryphena, Okupu, Whangaparapara, in and around Port FitzRoy. Many visitors come to the island via boat and often look for moorings to hire instead of anchoring.
This is particularly important at the present as there is a controlled area notice and rāhui in place restricting boats from anchoring in Tryphena, Okupu and Whangaparapara due to an invasive seaweed, Caulerpa Brachypus that has been found in the waters around the island.
Below is a list of contact details for their private owners for you to get in touch with.
Please note that it is up to the individual mooring licensees that they follow the conditions of their license as per Auckland Transport’s licensing.
