Earlier Incidents

The mouth of the Taieri river is notoriously dangerous to cross. It is likely that most accidents are
dealt with by the people involved and go unreported. However, this location has the highest
emergency call-out rate around. Below are a few from the pages of the Otago Daily Times.

If you need to report an incident, you should use the ORC Harbourmaster vessel incident report.
