Our Day Sea Kayak tour Rangitoto Island explores the landmark of the Auckland region and allows you to see Auckland city from another perspective.
After your safety briefing and paddling instruction you will kayak across the Waitemata harbour, meaning 'sparkling waters', 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 the 1hr 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, hearty 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.
We then kayak back south and arrive safely at St Heliers Bay.
Our Day Sea Kayak tour to Rangitoto is an exciting, action-packed and educative day for all!

"My kayaking tour to Rangitoto was the highlight of my trip to Auckland. Nic and his partner Alex were great company and extremely well versed in the culture, history, and natural make up of the area. The equipment was top notch and Nic provided all the extras that someone on tour might not have along. On top of the great tour, the chow was outstanding, right down to the homemade muffins. I would recommend this tour to anyone of any skill level." - Troy Aikens on TripAdvisor.com
