How often do the SeaLink vessels move?
Currently there are up to eleven scheduled vessel movements a day in and out of Westhaven. The vessels are 38-46m in size and each time the vessel arrives and leaves it will need about two minutes to turn in the Westhaven entrance.
Do the vessels have exclusion zones around them?
Yes, the largest vessels Island Navigator, Seabridge and Seaway have moving exclusion zones around them. All vessels should maintain a recommended distance of 100m at all times.
Do the vessels need extra room in bad weather?
Yes, the barges will need a little more time and space to turn particularly during a North Easterly. Always be mindful of the conditions.
