Regional webcams

We operate regional webcams that help us to monitor coastal conditions and track ships. They are also a helpful tool for navigation safety and recreational boating.

The webcams display static images that update every five minutes. Occasionally the Harbourmaster’s Office will zoom into the ships to track them. This can temporarily alter the view.

It’s important that you double-check the image time stamp and check the marine weather forecast before going out on the water for the most up-to-date information. If a webcam goes down, the last image captured will be displayed until we are notified of an issue or it comes back online.

We hope to add more over time so we can show different views around our Canterbury waterways.
