Beginning the afternoon portion of the tour, you will cross the Harbour Bridge to Lake Pupuke, which is a gigantic volcanic explosion crater.
You will then be taken to O'Neil's Bay, where you will enjoy a short walk to see where lava flows have run through an ancient forest, creating unique tree molds. There is then an option of a 15-minute stroll along Takapuna Beach, where you will be picked up at the end.
Heading to North Head volcano, you will explore the tunnels and large gun emplacements. Finishing up at Mt Victoria volcano, enjoy the magnificent views of Auckland City from the opposite side of the harbour.
There is then the option to stay in Devonport for dinner and take the ferry back to Auckland City in your own time and expense, or be driven back across the Harbour Bridge to the city for 7pm.
