Activity description

This day sea kayak tour Rangitoto Island explores the landmark of the Auckland region and allows you to see Auckland city from another perspective.

After a safety briefing and paddling instruction from your guide, you will kayak across the Waitemata harbour, where you may see wildlife such as Little Blue Penguins and Cooks Petrels.

On arrival at Rangitoto Island, which is the largest and youngest of Auckland’s volcanoes, you will start with 1-hour trek to the summit, viewing the spectacular sites and learning all about the history of the region. Upon reaching the top, you will be treated to the finest 360 degree views that the Auckland region has to offer.

At the return to the water's edge, a healthy kiwi lunch will be awaiting you. 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.

You then kayak back south and arrive safely at St Heliers Bay.

This day sea kayaking to Rangitoto is an exciting, action-packed and educative excursion for everyone.
