Location


The entrance to Tauranga harbour is to the west of the 230 metre high Mount Maunganui, which is visible from many miles to seaward.

Entrance Navigation


The harbour entrance should be approached from the North East to avoid coming too close to Matakana Bank, which breaks in heavy weather. The main marked channel to enter Tauranga harbour has at least 10 metres of water at chart datum, but the tidal streams can be very strong, 4.5 to 5 knots (spring tides).
