The Eastern Marine Network is a collective of boating clubs, community organisations and local iwi.

Representing over 3,000 members and more than 10,000 Aucklanders, we exist to help the people of Auckland access the Waitematā Harbour for active sports and marine recreation and encourage environmentally sustainable practices.

We want to encourage Aucklanders to enjoy our waters, be more active, more often while ensuring our marine environment is preserved for our future generations.


By working together, we can achieve this for everyone. 

Our Goals

Representing over 3,000 members and 10,000 Aucklanders, the Eastern Marine Network collaboration of boating clubs, community organisations and local iwi are working to:

  • provide marine based facilities and precincts to meet the needs of the community - locally, regionally and nationally;

  • encourage active participation in water-based sports;

  • promote water safety

  • support the future of our marine environment;

  • assist Auckland Council to deliver their commitment to allow everyone access to the seas.

Boating in the Eastern Bays

Auckland is a maritime city, focused on the beautiful Waitematā harbour. The water is the heart of the city, providing kai, transport and recreation.

By promoting sustainable recreation on the Waitematā we can preserve this vital environment for future generations while meeting the sporting needs of today.
