Waitemata means “obsidian glass” and refers to the shimmering surface of the harbour sea. The harbour has many famous landmarks including Chelsea Sugar Refinery, The Harbour Bridge, Rangitoto Island and newly built for the Rugby World Cup 2011; The Cloud on Queens Wharf. The lively harbour is home to many yachts, freight ships, recreational fishing vessels and increasingly cruise liners.
We are very conscious of our place as the first commercial jet boating activity in the harbour, working closely with Maritime New Zealand on safety training and communication to add to the range of exciting activities that make the most of our beautiful harbour.
The harbour is our most prized resource and we work hard to keep her clean and healthy. Our Qualmark Environmental Silver award was earned through our commitment to cleaning up the harbour. By working with Sustainable Coastlines and Waitemata Harbour Clean-up Trust, we are able to help towards maintaining a clean, green waterfront for all to enjoy. You can learn more about what we are up to in the harbour by joining our facebook page or following us on twitter.
