Commercial Coast and Harbour Use

Commercial vessels include all cargo vessels, cruise ships, fishing vessels, ferries and tourism operators throughout the region.

Otago Harbour is regarded as the eco-tourism capital of New Zealand, due to its abundant bird and sea life. Within Otago Harbour is Port Otago, the primary export port for the South Island region of New Zealand.

Day-to-day activities in the commercial port areas of Otago Harbour area managed by Port Otago Limited. In Oamaru Harbour, all activities are managed by Waitaki District Council. In both cases, our Harbourmaster has oversight of maritime safety.
