Is the Westhaven Marina Office open for walk ins?
We’re following the advice of the Ministry of Health and Auckland Council and practicing physical distancing.

Instead, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us (0800 627 462), we have measures in place and we will be able to assist you.
Why you can’t self-isolate on your vessel within Westhaven Marina:
The risk to others is too great. Even the simple task of touching the keypad or gate to get on or off the pier puts other users at risk.
If you were to self-isolate for 14 days or more within the marina, you would be needing to use public facilities e.g. bathroom, laundry etc.
Please understand our stance on this. We appreciate this is a really difficult time, and we will work with our berth holders to help assist where we can.
How are we enforcing this?
We have our security monitoring the marina at present and should there be any need to escalate, it will become a police matter.
Can I self-isolate on my boat outside of Westhaven Marina?
Yes, you can self-isolate for 14 days on board your vessel out at sea or moored off the coast of New Zealand.
What if I develop symptoms?
The symptoms of COVID-19 are:
- a fever (at least 38°C)

- shortness of breath
