All jetski and other personal water craft (PWC) using Bay of Plenty waterways need be registered.

How do I register my jetski and other personal water craft?

To keep registration costs to a minimum we have teamed up with Auckland Transport. To register your jetski or other personal water craft for use head over to the Auckland Transport Harbourmaster page. Registration is a one off fee, valid for the lifetime of the machine and it will be effective for the Bay of Plenty, Auckland, Waikato and Northland regions. It can only be done online via the Auckland Transport website. 

These machines are fast and exciting but need to be handled with care. The same boating rules apply to jetski and other Personal Water Craft as for boats. There are designated areas for jetski to speed but there are also areas where they are not allowed.
