Orakei Marina Environment

Orakei Marina is passionate about preserving the marine environment and is proactively taking steps to ensure that any biosecurity risks or hazards are identified and managed properly.  We are currently working towards Blue Flag Certification which recognises our commitment to a worldwide standard of sustainable boating activity.

We also currently work in association with Experiencing Marine Reserves (EMR) a non-profit action based marine education programme. Through this partnership, we can provide our berth owners and renters with relevant information to help keep our waters safe. Please follow the link for up to date bio-security notices and/or procedures.

Check out our the Environmental Code of Conduct for Orakei Marina here.

Bio-security notice:
The Mediterranean Fanworm will anchor to any hard substrate, including piers, your hull, especially if it has been moored at Waitemata Harbour in Auckland or other known locations of the pest. For more information please follow this link.
