Join Gulf Eco Adventures for an unforgettable journey to the treasured island of Hauturu Little Barrier!
This 4.5-hour winter season boat cruise gets you up close to the rugged, stunningly beautiful coastline, with steep cliffs, sea caves and lush native bush full of bird-life.
Lunch is included, complimentary tea, coffee & hot chocolate, with a maximum of 12 passengers you'll be guaranteed a personal and friendly experience.
Internationally recognized, this abundant and thriving nature reserve is considered the most intact ecosystem in New Zealand, and is known as the 'jewel in the crown' of the Hauraki Gulf.
Landings are not permitted on the island, however, your passionate & knowledgeable skipper & guide will provide a fascinating commentary on the islands history, conservation and ecology.
The winter season also provides the best wildlife viewing - including opportunities for spectacular dolphin sightings, whales, seals, penguins and seabirds.
We depart from Sandspit marina, just 50 minutes north of Auckland city. There are regular, cheap bus fares from the city to Warkworth, where we also offer FREE pick up / drop off between Warkworth & Sandspit.
