Jacks Point Boat Ramp Opens

Jacks Point boat ramp is now open to the public following a fortnight of dredging to remove mud and silt in Fureys Creek, according to the Thames-Coromandel District Council.

The boat ramp, which is beside the Patukirikiri Reserve in Coromandel Town had been closed temporarily due to health and safety concerns around deep mud at the end of the ramp.

Further dredging of the Fureys Creek outlying channel is planned over the next week or two to improve tidal access to the boat ramp.

“Once the channel dredging has been completed there will be a much improved tidal access making for another alternative ramp option to the Sugarloaf Wharf for recreational fishers and boaties,” said Thames-Coromandel Area Manager Greg Hampton.

The dredging operations started on Monday, 20 June.
