Whakatane Harbour

Located in the Bay of Plenty, the Whakatane Harbour is a river port primarily servicing a commercial and charter fishing fleet. Because of its proximity to rich inshore fishing grounds, the port also provides access for up to 15,000 pleasure vessel movements annually. Whakatane has a distinction of being the yellow fin tuna capital with the annual yellow fin tournament attracting up to 800 anglers.
