Tasman’s marine area extends from Kahurangi Lighthouse in the south-west to Champion Road (Richmond) in the north-east.

Including the seabed, the marine area extends seaward from the mean high water mark out to the 12 nautical mile territorial limit. This covers a coast line of approximately 725 kilometres and includes many estuaries and inlets.
