What to Expect

Less than 10 minutes from downtown Auckland you’ll launch from our iconic Fergs Kayaks base on the water’s edge at Okahu Bay.

Your paddling adventure to the island takes a little over an hour, once there, your guide will lead you on a summit hike, taking in the amazing geology, flora and fauna, and fascinating history of this unique, dormant volcano.

At the peak, you will enjoy a 360° view of Auckland City, the inner harbour and islands of the Hauraki Gulf. On a clear evening, the sunset is breathtaking.


A real highlight of this tour is paddling home under the stars with the lights of Auckland in the distance. It is a wonderfully serene way to end the day.
