Kerikeri Cruising Club/Marina is the most northern marina in the Bay of Islands, just outside of the Kerikeri Inlet at the northern shore of Doves Peninsula. The next town, Kerikeri, is about 20 driving minutes away.

SuAn is docked for one night and we explore the area on foot. Doves Bay is a well protected bay with steep shores. Besides the marina are plenty of yachts tied to their own moorings. There is no more space to anchor between those boats.

Private properties with beautiful views are located on the shores. Some of the small bays have nice sandy beaches and are full with moored yachts. It is a beautiful place with a nice hiking trail at the end of the peninsula. But besides the yacht club there is no shop, no restaurant, no public transportation and very bad reception of internet or mobile signal.
