Taupo Boat Harbour




Taupo Boat Harbour

The Taupo boat harbour when viewed on a fine day is a beautiful place with lots of boats of many different kinds moored there in the Taupo Marina. Some of the boats are available for chartering while others are only used by the owners themselves.

This idyllic scene masks a river with a strong current however. And when the boats are taken out from their moorings it is important that their engines are working well because without power the current would swiftly take them down to the control gates bridge where the current is even swifter.
