Description

Explore the landmark of the Auckland region and see Auckland city from another perspective. The full-day adventure tour by kayak across Waitemata Harbor will take you to the area’s youngest and most active volcano. After your safety briefing and paddling instruction, you will kayak across the Waitemata Harbor, meaning “sparkling waters.” where you may see wildlife, such as Little Blue Penguins and Cooks Petrels. On arrival at Rangitoto Island, location for the largest and youngest of Auckland’s volcanoes, you will start a leisurely 1-hour hike to the summit. Walk up the pohutukawa-cloaked island exploring the baked scoria rocks, which support over 200 different native trees and flowering plants. Upon reaching the top you will be treated to the finest 360-degree views that the Auckland region has to offer. Return to the water’s edge, where a healthy, hearty Kiwi lunch will be awaiting you, with cold and hot drinks to match! If time permits, you might even enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea before the gear is packed back into the kayak to head home. Kayak back south, perhaps with the help of a sail to take you safely back to St Heliers Bay.
