Coastguard station

Saving lives at sea - from Matiatia

Coastguard Waiheke was formed in 1990. Initially created as a rescue arm of the Waiheke Boating Club, it grew to become a separate Coastguard unit, and has been associated with the New Zealand Coastguard Federation since 1997.

You’ll see their 10.2m Naiad rigid-hulled inflatable boat, launched in 2010, alongside the Matiatia ferry wharf.
