Welcome to the New Zealand Clean Boating Programme

New Zealand has one of the highest levels of recreational boating activities in the world. We have over 15,000km of coastline making New Zealand the 10th longest coastline of all countries in the world. As boating continues to increase in popularity, it becomes increasingly important to educate boaters about environmentally sound boating practices and to motivate changes in behavior that help reduce pollution from boat operation and maintenance.

As a recreational user of our waterways you want to enjoy safe and healthy waters. This website has been designed to give you some simple tips for boating clean and green in New Zealand.

Together we can make a difference. Reduce - Reuse - Recycle
