New nautical chart for Whitianga Harbour

Boaties will benefit from Land Information New Zealand’s (LINZ) new nautical chart for Whitianga Harbour.

LINZ’s Manager Chart Production Jennifer Ryan says the new chart gives skippers much more detail about this popular boating and fishing spot.

“The harbour was previously covered in an inset plan on another chart. This new dedicated chart provides much better coverage of the upper harbour and Buffalo Bay. It incorporates updated information on buoys and other navigational aids, as well as new survey information” says Jennifer.

“Whether you’re a professional skipper or a weekend yachtie, we’d encourage you to get a copy if you plan to operate in the area.”

NZ 5316 – Whitianga is available from chart retailers.
