Some info for Z pier public ramp users.. the public ramp is up for an upgrade.. ie replacement.. this is not a short job and is going to be EXPENSIVE but alot of the things that are wrong with it are going to be put right.. night lites, new piles and resurfacing of the ramp, new floating jetties and open face cleats... I believe this will start next year or possibly late this year.  they may also make them longer..
 
yay!!!

i agree that seperate posts would be better, i know of one ramp listed in more than one publication which longer exists.
If the conditions are marginal, you need a bigger boat

http://www.northlandfishing.net.nz   (no relation to this site) has a list of ramps in Northland and welcomes input from readers. Could become the resource you are looking for if enough people are willing to participate.

Taipa.
For those of you planning on heading north, Taipa is an all tide dual concrete ramp with a pontoon and good parking...  You can pull up to the pontoon and drop off your person to retrieve the car and trailer.. However its a bit of a mission at dead low tide to pass the painter rope around the poles to bring it to the ramp..  At low tide we simply disembark as per normal at the ramp... A fair current can run per tidal stream both ways on the outgoing and incoming tide .. The trick is to hold the bow of the boat against the current direction and have the driver deliver the trailer on an angle to accommodate retrieval.. 


The ramp and the Pontoon at the end of the Wharf..


On leaving the ramp, stay in the channel.. (the deeper water is easily seen) and on exiting and entering the river mouth,  an"S" movement is required to exit/enter...
As always if unsure..  ask a local..

Mangonui.. Mill Bay..
All tide dual concrete ramp with a pontoon and reasonable parking.. can get cluttered in summertime.. As the name denotes .. Mill Bay is "mostly' like a mill pond with an easy launch.  Long pontoon allows 3 boats to tie up.. and another can be taken around the end to the opposite side.. Excellent for solo launch and retrieve

The parking along the road

The Ramp and Pontoon..

Hi Roto... Haven't Launched there... but would depend on wind and sea state..  Timber from road to mean high water, good parking.. 4wd country ... Back to Taipa could be an option if the sea state doesn't allow launch..  within 20-25 mins away..

Launching from Tokerau beach is possible, though you may have to push the trailer out a fair distance at the Whatuwhiwhi end. There is good access all along the beach from Ramp road to Whatuwhiwhi. Personally I gave up launching off the beach, and prefer to go in at Perihipe Bay - follow the road around past the Fire station at Whatuwhiwhi. DONT take your vehicle along the beach past the small creek where it exits over the sand, or you will get stuck, trust me!  Better to launch at the far left hand side, park the tow vehicle high up on the beach so you dont obstruct access for others. Please take care  - lots of children swim at this delightful spot. Lock your vehicle !

 Another great spot is Matai Bay, not too far on past Whatuwhiwhi, with easy launching of the beach in most winds/tides.
Petrol/deisel is available from the Whatuwhiwhi store, or fill up as you pass Taipa.
Enjoy!

Whangaroa Ramp.
 (Need to get petrol from Kaeo)  Good sheltered concrete ramp all tides but can be slippery and difficult for larger boats at dead low.. Limited parking but normally not a problem apart from xmas holidays where it can get congested and a wee walk is in order.. If self launching there are poles to tie up to.. 

The ramp at half tide...

The Harbour entrance with Stevensons Island some 2-3 miles out  (left background..)

The entrance from hill top in the inner harbour.. Tauranga Bay just around the background  point on the right..

Thanks for that Barfly, after talking with the camp they have confirmed that launching is at perehipe, so thanks for the heads upThumbs%20Up I heard Matai was a bit dodgy, like you may come back from fishing and find your vehicle or trailer is no longer there sort of dodgy.
