Cape Brett to Marsden Point


I am booked at Marsden Cove New Zealand to slip my boat and am looking for a recommended overnight bay somewhere between Cape Brett and Marsden Point. I have considered Tutukaka but am unsure of anchorages as I don't really need a berth. I had also wondered about the Poor Knights but having dived there I can't really recall any good anchorages (nor even whether anchoring is permitted) Is there anyone here who has sailed that area can recommend a sheltered anchorage for one night. We could easily do it in one day but the thought of staying over and relaxing somewhere would be better. Thanks

Re: Cape Brett to Marsden Point

We stopped at Whangamumu. Nice anchorage, interesting shore whale station.
Whangaruru long way in, nice hiking trail
Tutukaka in front of Phillip Island. Rolly
Urquharts Bay - good protection

I'm sure local Kiwis can give you more details.
