Kinloch Marina is located 20 km northwest of Taupo on the shores of Whangamata Bay, Lake Taupo. We are a modern 142 berth marina.

The marina is owned by Kinloch Marina Limited, made up of share and unit title holders and 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.
