The 90 metre wharf is great for the kids and the harbour offers flounder and mullet for the netting fraternity. Divers are catered for with excellent Cray fishing on the islands and up the Coromandel Coast and ample Scallop beds dotted throughout the area.



Access is offered from Matarangi's own ramp on the Whangapoua Harbour, Kuaotunu ramp just over the hill or the eastern end of the beach for smaller craft. There is an all tide ski lane in the harbour. The offshore islands feature safe anchorage for the overnight trips and wonderful bays and sandy beaches for day trips and picnics.
