Takahanga marae is in Kaikōura. The primary hapu is Ngāti Kuri of Ngai Tahu.

The whare tupuna is named Maru Kaitatea, and was opened in January 1992. This whare stands on the exact site of the original house, which stood here almost 200 years ago. The original marae was built approximately 450 years ago by Kāti Mamoe and has been occupied ever since.

Takahanga marae connects ancestrally to the waka Araiteuru and Takitimu, the awa Te Tai o Marokura and the maunga Tapuae o Uenuku.
