Short-term Berthage







If you need to stop off at Westhaven for a short time, even as little as a few hours, please contact the Marina Office to book a berth. This will give you access to power, water, and carparking. 

 

You will need to meet the Marina’s requirements, including public liability insurance. The minimum booking period is 24 hours, starting and finishing at 9am each day. 

IN AN EMERGENCY OR DISTRESS SITUATION

Entry to drop off or pick up will not be unreasonably denied in an emergency or distress situation. Please contact the Marina on VHF Channel 13, any time day or night.

TO ACCESS BERTHS

Westhaven Marina maintains a listening watch on VHF Channel 13, or telephone 0800 MARINA, or call Security on 09 360 5881.

PICK UP AND DROP OFF

The current loading zones at U and W piers are available as a drop off and pick up point for berth-holders and pile mooring customers. 

ST MARY’S BAY

St Mary’s Bay is a transiting area, that we keep clear for those accessing the public launching ramp. It is also used by the Ponsonby Cruising Club’s sailing school, remote control yachting, stand up paddleboarding, and the Dragon Boat Association. Vessels anchoring, even temporarily, aren’t compatible with these activities.

WHERE ELSE CAN I GO?

Panuku Development Auckland maintains a Visitor’s Berth within the Viaduct Harbour, which is a convenient stop off point for short times, for example, to pick up supplies or to meet guests, or to have a coffee or meal. The berth is free to use for two hours, and is available on a first in, first served basis. To gain access to the area, call Viaduct Control on VHF Ch73 to request a bridge lift, and let them know you will be using the visitor’s berth. The berth can also be booked for overnight stays for $80 plus GST - please call the Viaduct Marina Office on 09 355 1837 to make a booking. 

There are also many anchoring locations within Auckland’s harbours, suitable in different weather conditions. Please consult your navigational charts. Auckland Council also maintains a list of Boat Ramps and Jetties on its website, but note that many of these are not suitable for larger boats.

If you are likely to need a berth in Auckland, we recommend you book ahead.
