Popular with recreational boaties, it is close enough for an easy day trip from Nelson or Motueka in small vessels.
Mapua Wharf is owned by Tasman District Council.
It is recommended that transit through the channel be between the floats and ideally approximately 2 hours either side of high tide depending on vessel draft.
The chart inset for Mapua Wharf should not be relied upon.
