If you love nature and want a truly meaningful experience then I would highly recommend the guided tour of Moutohora (Whale Island) with White Island Tours. After an enjoyable cruise to the island on the powerful Moutohora Cat with Paul at the helm, my daughter, two grand daughters and me had such a good time with Kelsey & Gaia as our friendly and very professional guides.
ANZAC Day was a beauty and we were conveniently shaded by native trees while we ventured along the first track to enjoy a spectacular elevated view. I was very happy about getting a photo of Whakaari (White Island) from there.
We learned all about the bird life, trees & plants, tuatara, seals and the amazing work DOC does in providing a safe habitat for some of our endangered species on this little paradise as we continued our journey. An easy pace eventually led to a beautiful sandy beach where we socialised, ate our lunch and swam prior to circling the island on the catamaran before the return trip.
Kelsey, Gaia & Paul enabled and contributed to a wonderful family experience for us on this precious island of ours so on behalf of Ayla, Maia & Tiahomaira - thank you so much. Be proud White Island Tours - your staff are amazing!More
