Two fishing boats from Riverton battle their way through and over the Greymouth Bar after the river was flooded from heavy rains which had hit the area over the previous 24 hours. The bar is one of the most dangerous bars in New Zealand.
The skippers of these boats were later prosecuted for entering the river mouth while it was closed.
This incredible footage was seen on New Zealand news that night. We were filming the river mouth for a documentary channel when we saw these two boats approach. There have been many deaths over the years and we were amazed that they made it.
