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.

Vessels should only enter the zone for collision avoidance, to avoid immediate danger or with prior authorisation.
