Waterwise Okahu Bay has been operating for the last 25 years out of the Landing at Okahu Bay, Tamaki Drive. It currently consists of 7 schools from the Eastern Bays and central Auckland area.
Waterwise Okahu Bay has a long standing relationship with the Auckland Sailing Club and uses one of its garage sheds to store its equipment. WOB currently has 2 aluminium rescue boats, 16 optis, 12 single kayaks and 2 double kayaks as well as all the necessary sailing and safety equipment. Schools run their own sailing, kayaking and water activity programmes generally in Terms 1 and 4.
Each year the group holds an annual regatta involving all the schools. Approximately 500 students go through the Waterwise sailing programme each year.
