Rangitoto Volcano Adventure

20161219122928.jpg

A guided sea kayak tour to Auckland’s Rangitoto Island to see the sunset is a unique experience from which you are sure to return with a real sense of achievement. People tell us this that is one of the best things they have done in Auckland.

Fergs have been guiding these tours for more than 20 years. Our experienced guides therefore know how to keep you safe on the water as you kayak across Auckland harbour.

We paddle from Fergs Kayaks well known base on the water’s edge at Okahu Bay, less than 10 mins from downtown Auckland. The paddle to Rangitoto takes about 75 mins.

Once on the Island, your guide will lead you on a 1 hour walk to the summit. On the way you’ll learn a bit about the amazing geology and flora and fascinating history of this iconic dormant volcano. At the top, you will get a 360 degree view of Auckland City and the inner harbour and other islands of the Hauraki Gulf. On a clear evening, the sunset from there is beautiful.

The paddle back home under the stars with the lights of Auckland in the distance is a highlight of the tour. It is a wonderfully serene way to end the day.

There’s a chance that you will see marine life on route including dolphins and penguins. You might even be lucky enough to see the leopard seal that sometimes sleeps on our ramp.

Our Rangitoto sunset tours meet at Fergs Kayaks base at 5.30pm and return at approximately 11pm.

We also guide daytime kayak tours to Rangitoto, meeting at 8.30am and returning at approximately 2pm.

Bookings are essential for all our kayak tours.
