Cruise Ship Safety Zone

In the interests of safety and security a safety zone will be established around cruise ships manoeuvring and at anchor in the Little Russel.

Vessels in the Little Russel are requested to give the cruise ships a wide berth, approaching no nearer than 200m and avoid creating wash which could endanger the tendering operation.
