Issued 17 February 2023: If you're going out boating, please navigate safely and be aware of likely floating debris, sunken objects and vessels.

Dicks Bay ski lane removal

The ski lane at Dicks Bay has been removed and a maximum speed limit of 5 knots is now in place in the area.

This is due to the Marine Protected Area East of Russell Peninsula which is part of the Marine Mammal Sanctuary introduced by DOC. The nearest ski lane is now at Tapeka Point or Te Tii beach Waitangi.

Contact 0800 362 468 for any Marine Mammal Sanctuary enquiries.
