Smugglers Cove Tour

Smugglers Cove Tour

Best on N-NE wind or in light wind conditions.

Smugglers Cove is one of Whangarei's great beaches and a great place to snorkel, fish, swim or relax. You can see the distance the Hen and Chickens Islands and on a good day other Islands come into view. You can climb higher from Smugglers if you are feeling energetic.

Leaving from Urquarts Bay we pass cormorants roosting. On the left we see the old gun turret. We pass the Frenchman Island before rounding the Bream Head Scenic Reserve near the entrance to Whangarei Harbour. This area has some of the best coastal bush in NZ.
