Hunters Creek is a popular water-skiing lane near Matakana and Rangiwāea Islands in Tauranga Harbour. Water skiing is permitted within the zone outside of 2 hours immediately before and after low tide. Concerns have been raised about the present location of the ski lane, its effect on private property, and the health and safety concerns for people swimming nearby. We are seeking feedback on potentially removing the ski zone from Hunters Creek.
This would mean that water skiing is no longer permitted within this zone, but there would still be access for other activities such as boating, personal watercrafts and swimming.
