Ngāti Wai is a Māori iwi of the east coast of the Northland Region of New Zealand. Its historical area stretched from Cape Brett in the north to Takatu Point on Tawharanui Peninsula in the south and out to Great Barrier Island, the Poor Knights Islands and other offshore islands.

Descendants of Ngāti Wai include brothers Jim, Ian and Winston Peters, artist Shona Rapira Davies, and writer Paula Morris.

In April 2006, Ngāti Wai sued the Department of Conservation over its handling of consultation issues in Northland regarding a marine reserve.[1]
