New Wave Monitoring Buoy in Wellington Harbour

New Wave Monitoring Buoy – Hutt Motorway

For all our Wellington Harbour Paddlers please take note:

Please be advised that a wave monitoring buoy is going to be deployed approximately 100m off the coast along the Hutt Motorway.(attached is an image indicating it’s approximate location).

There will be 3 buoys linked ~4m apart, the main buoy being yellow in colour and lit at night (8 flashes every 20 seconds). Deployment date is expected to be sometime this week, and it may remain in place for up to 5 months.

Please navigate with caution in this area and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,

Alex Paterson
