Welcome to Kinloch Marina

The beautiful village of Kinloch is located 20 kms north west of Taupo on the shores of Whangamata Bay, Lake Taupo.

There, as its centre piece, is our modern 142 berth marina.  The marina is owned by Kinloch Marina Limited being made up of share and unit title holders.  A Manager runs the Marina on behalf of a Board of Directors.

Although a private marina it is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC who pay a fee to use the facility.

All boaties are welcome, for our marina truly is ‘the gateway to the Western Bays’ – the home of some of the best trout fishing in the world, and breath taking scenery.

Come visit us and make use of this great facility.
