From First Up, 5:14 am on 7 October 2021

Aucklanders keen to hit the water again can do so ... but some of the normal rules have changed. All sailing and boating activities are go, including fishing, scuba diving and jetskiing - but it is limited to people from the same household - the joining of bubbles is no longer allowed. Also Aucklanders aren't allowed to travel to Waiheke or Great Barrier and land at the islands unless you are a permanent resident. Last night Rob McCaw, head of operations for Coastguard NZ talked to our producer Ellie Jay.
