We booked the kayaking trip to Rangitoto but due to the Prada's cup being on we were not able to get there. So they took us to Browns Island instead. The Guide was lovely and we had a great time. Later we discovered the Browns island trip was $40 cheaper but they would not provide us with any refund. Emailed and Simon said he would not provide a refund and gave irrelevant excuses but said I could go on a free trip with another paying customer, within a month. It is not the kind of trip you want to do regularly. His email was sarcastic and unprofessional. Such a shame as we had a nice experience but his customer service ruined it. Will not be booking with them again.

After years of wanting to do it - I finally got up the courage to do the Auckland Rangitoto Island Guided Sunset Kayaking Tour.

The first thing I need to say is you must be at least moderately fit to do this. The next six hours will see you getting a whole body workout, up body and core with the paddling and then walking up to the summit of the volcano and back. I'm 49 and my partner is 42 and I would describe us as averagely fit and we handled it just fine - some kayaking experience would be helpful - as opposed to being your very first time.

We arrived at Fergs around 4pm and left to start the paddling just before 5pm. Everything is supplied from the tandem kayaks, spray skirt, lifejacket and spray jackets.

We took our own food and torches for the walk back from the top of Rangitoto.

Everything is stored in waterproof hatches and once out on the water the kayaks are very stable.

After that approximately 1.5hr paddle across the Waitemata Harbour to Rangitoto Island, followed by something to eat, and then a 45min guided walk up to the crater for a 360° sunset vista of Auckland’s skyline and the Hauraki Gulf.

We lingered at the summit watched the sun set and then finally, paddled home under a full moon - we got back at 11:45 pm. I really enjoyed it and our bodies certainly felt like they had a workout the following day.

It was an epic adventure - our Guide Paul was brilliant and we felt in very safe and capable hands.

This is a must do adventure and we will be back to do this again in the future.

Highly recommended.
