Ōrākei Basin flushing schedule

​What is the flushing schedule?

The flushing schedule shows the days when the water levels in Ōrākei Basin will be tidal – going in or out. The times given are when it will be full and the water locked in.

We manage the schedule alongside Auckland Water Ski Club.

Times are not guaranteed as the schedule can change with bad weather. The only way to be absolutely certain that the basin is full is to physically check.

Check the table regularly for additional dates.
