People in Welcome Bay have come together to help three vehicles that got stuck in the Welcome Bay estuary this morning.

Photos sent in to SunLive show a quad bike, a ute and a tractor all stuck in what appears to be a sand bar off Ranginui Road.

Another readers says it looks like a quad bike got stuck and a ute went to tow it out, when that got a stuck.

Someone then tried to use a tractor to pull the other two vehicles out.

"Thank God a 4wd drive is down there and gas winched the tractor and quad out, they are going in for the truck now," says Hellen Heron.

A SunLive reader has messaged us on Facebook to says the tide is coming in.

"Other vehicles have tried to recover with no luck.

"Rowe motors just arrived to help."
