Russell Bay - Bay of Islands

Just out of Opua Harbor and north is Russell Bay. Most sailors choose to moor their sailboats or chartered power yachts right outside of town where there are several buoy moorings. Just south around the tiny peninsula is another bay that can see crowds of people as well. Most of the rentable moorings here are colored red and include a phone number painted on the side. The costs can range from $40 dollars per week to over $150 dollars per month. Though it can get crowded, there are some fantastic waterside restaurants. You can drop anchor if you canít get hold of a mooring.
