Rangitoto Guided Trip

$150.00

Rangitoto Island is a spectacular volcanic island in the Auckland Harbour, New Zealand.  This landmark rises 260 meters (850 ft) high, offering 360 degrees breath-taking views of the Hauraki Gulf.  With only a few kilometres of open water between Fergs Kayaks (Okahu Bay) and Rangitoto, our sea kayak tour offers the best combination of sea kayaking and trail walking adventure. 

Auckland the City of Sails is not called the city of sails for no reason, you can expect to see all sorts of sail boats/yachts as you cross the harbor to Rangitoto but don’t worry we have experienced sea kayak guides that will look out for boat/yacht traffic and any other hazards. 

Once on the Island, we continue our adventure up to the summit of Rangitoto where there are plenty of stops for photo opportunities.  At the top of Rangitoto we get to experience lunch or dinner with a 360 degree view of Auckland City, Motutapu Island, Coromandel Peninsula, Whangaporoa Peninsula, Waitakere Ranges, Sky Tower, Harbour Bridge and much more.   For a unique experience we offer a sunset/night tour option, where you sea kayak to Rangitoto during the sunset and get to the summit of Rangitoto in time to enjoy dinner.  On our return trip, we have the easy part of walking back down the hill to kayaking back to Fergs Kayaks (Okahu Bay).
