Harbour management

The Harbourmaster and his team work to ensure all water users are able to share in use of our waterways in a safe manner.

We provide safe and efficient maritime management for commercial and recreational users of our region's waters.

We operate a 24-hour harbour communication station, operate and maintain navigation aids in the region, manage mooring areas and respond to marine oil spills.

The waters of our region extend from the Otaki River in the west to the Mataikona River north of Castlepoint in the east.

World Water-ski champs

This exciting event is coming to Wellington between the 9th and 19th of April, races of up to 18 boats towing skiers, some at 100mph will be in Lambton Harbour and Evans Bay.

There will be lots of great viewing from shore and also on the water.  There is more information on the waterski world facebook page .
