Mana Cruising Club's Porthole Bistro provides a warm and welcoming place to dine, with sumptuous, affordable meals to suit all ages.
The Mana Cruising Club has a fully serviced conference facility that can cater for up to 100 people.
We encourage you to join in on the numerous social events throughout the year.
The Cook Strait is one of the most challenging stretches of water in New Zealand and always needs a high level of respect. The weather is a major contributor to the challenge and we encourage the use of “Marine forecasts”. There is a local Mana forecast on the metservice website.
Mana Cruising Club members and owners of “trailer boat” or “small boat” have full use the facilities of the club, including one of the most versatile ramps in the area.
Additionally information on the register could be made available to the police/search and rescue in the event that you ever get into difficulties on the water.
