I have spent a few days at Coffs Harbour Marina in 2002, on the way to New Caledonia and on the way back. Great place, great weather, good shops and restaurants in town. A short walk to the nearest shops etc and a short bus ride into the city proper. Not far from Coffs are the Solitary Island group, a good scuba dive site. There are a number of dive operators within walking distance of the marina.
We want a lot of info such as this on the board. I'm going cruising in your waters some years from now. How was New Caledonia by the way?
New Caledonia was fantastic. The Isle of Pines was also terrific. I could have spent years there. The French and the Kanaks were all friendly and extremely helpfull. I can't say enough of how fantastic the locals were.
