Steer clear of the wave buoys

All vessels are legally required to stay at least 100 metres clear of the wave rider buoys. Vessels in the Whangārei approaches should not enter or leave the channel between the Fairway Buoy and No. 1 Buoy.

Please do not approach or fish near the buoys as they are mounted with numerous delicate instruments that can be easily damaged.
