Great physically demanding experience

We loved our experience, great team and beautiful views from the top of Rangitoto. Note the physical levels of different people vary so we had to wait for other people quite a bit which resulted in us taking longer to get to the island. Don’t underestimate the currents and winds as well. But overall I am very happy with everything and recommend this trip

What an experience! Standing on the shore line adrenaline and excitement pumping as in the distance we could see our destination. The kayaking is insane looking at the city in both day time and night time from a kayak is definitely a different perpesctive. We also got to see the Harbour bridge light show! The walk to the summit was breathtaking the views from the top were incredible. This is definitely a trip I would recommend, well worth it! ?

Kayak Tour to Rangitoto

Wow! That was an adventure! The guides were really cool and competent and we all made it to the top of the volcano and back. :) Unfortunately we arrived a little late at Rangitoto so we hurried up to the summit (to see the sunset) and couldn't really enjoy the environment and didn't get to know anything about it from our guide. But the view and the sunset were amazing! My absolute highlight was our kayak tour back underneath the stars and in black water with fluorescent plankton. That was magical!!
