Cruise ship & harbour events calendar

COVID-19: Cruise ship arrivals - 22 June 2020 – the New Zealand Government announced an extension to the cruise ship ban. It has not yet decided on a date to lift this ban.

Planning to hold an event on the water?

Is your event a swimming race, waka ama race, raft race, or similar? You only need to notify the Harbourmaster’s Office and provide a safety plan. We can provide safety advice, or help with your safety plan, for free, but we need at least six weeks' notice of your event.

If your event conflicts with another one, we can assist with safety advice if necessary.

Register your event

We will assess your registration and let you know if you need to complete any further documents, eg. to apply for a reserved area or speed uplift. If you need to do this, we will send you the appropriate application form.

We'll also publish your events on our calendar below.
