Paddle the incredible Waitemata Harbour from St Heliers to the iconic Rangitoto Island before making your ascent. Climb your way to the top for unspoilt panoramic views across the harbour. Enjoy a waterside lunch before the paddle back to Auckland.
This full day sea kayak tour of 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 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, 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.
