Keeping a watchful eye
There are 18 council wardens from Mangawhai to Houhora who are there to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves safely on Northland's Harbours.
Our harbour wardens are there to educate people, raising public awareness on navigation and safety matters and ensuring that everybody gets the opportunity to enjoy water activities safely.
If you spot something not quite right on one of our harbours, please call us on our 24/7 Environmental Hotline 0800 504 639 and one of our harbour wardens will be on the case.
