Freedom on the Water

Dinghy Adventures in the Mercury Bay are some of our little family’s favourite memories.

Freedom on the Water
One of our favourite days on the water exploring Lonely Bay.

A trusty dinghy and a Mercury portable Outboard are the perfect recipe for exploring Whitianga’s backyard paradise. For that matter there are so many places on the Coromandel Peninsula where these two basic items can mean a wonderful adventure for a family.

We live in Whitianga and that’s where our business home is and we have found we don’t need to travel far to find the Bay’s hidden gems, slipping into quiet coves and secluded beaches that only locals know. Lonely Bay, Double Bay, Horseshoe Bay, Cooks Beach Cave, (and Coroglen on a big tide) are some of our favourite getaway missions.

Every town on the Coromandel has these special places.

If you’re interested in finding the perfect set up for your adventures, call in and see us at 14 Moewai Road, Whitianga.  Now is the perfect time because Mercury have just launched a big sale on 2stroke and 4stroke portable engines, where you can save up to $1156 on selected 3.3- 30hp outboards.

Your little slice of paradise is waiting…

It’s been way too long for us. Hopefully, we’ll see you on the water soon.

Serah Jennings and her husband, Mark own Mercury Bay Marine and will help you with what is  just right for your family on the water.
