The Kaiapoi Marine Precinct is open for bookings.

The boutique marina incorporates a 115-metre floating river pontoon and a new wharf area which will support a range of casual through to longer-term publicly available lease berths.

Facilities include a fishing platform, the Coastguard's boat ramp which is available for public use, caravan and boat wastewater pump facilities, power services and freshwater taps.

The Kaiapoi Marine Precinct is located within the town centre and sits in the section of the Kaiapoi River between the Williams Street Bridge and the Coastguard boat ramp (next to the Coastguard headquarters).

The precinct is bordered at the north end by the Port & Eagle Brewpub, where riverside terrace bleachers and a timber boardwalk connect to the river's edge, and at the south end by the Ruataniwha Kaiapoi Civic Centre and Library.
