This is a must visit if you are into peace & quiet & enjoy walking or tramping. The local native wildlife & native trees make a great trip to this dormant volcano.

A beatiful spot, approximately 22 miles from Tauranga harbour enterance but lacks any real managed control and good services to stay on the island for any period of time.South East Bay is the bay to land at and where there is some accommodation.Popular with boaties that have all live aboard conveniences, they moore in the bay for safe anchorage & shelter. Pick the weather carefully, getting to and back from Mayor Island is great in good sea conditions but can be a hell of a trip in bad weather.

We go over on our boat so are independent but you can book a hut or take a tent through DOC, the island is serviced by a ferry (take seasick pills if you tend to get queasy cause it is an open water trip) and showers, toilets and a rustic cook house cater to your needs. Great walks, great beaches, take your camping gear and fishing rod and you are in for a real treat.
