Boating & Fishing
Tasman District is a boating paradise, but there are some rules to abide by and a need to consider safety. This page links you to by-law and safety information.
Tasman District’s Navigation Safety Bylaw controls all inland waterways and coastal waters up to 12 nautical miles (22.2 kilometres) offshore within Tasman District. When you ski, sail, motor, jetski, row or paddle any boat in the Tasman District, you are subject to the rules in the Bylaw.
