Huia Masters Swimming Club is a part of the Huia Pool that has a 25 meter well-maintained pool and a small learner's pool. There is a paddling pool for children under seven and a transparent enclosed play area for all children. The large outdoor grassed area and the water slide are great in summer and qualified lifeguards patrol all pools. While this is a busy pool, it is highly recommended as it caters for all members of the family. The club also holds several meets, competitions and social activities. Membership to the club gets you not only a good one hour of swimming but also a spa treat later! Check website for more details on Club night.

This is a unique facility combining a swimming pool, modern health and fitness centre and wonderful harbour views. The complex offers lane swimming, aqua-jogging, aerobics, a simple gym with machines and free weights, spas, sauna and a steam room. There are six lanes, few kids and the pool is 33 metres long.
