Adventure Island!

It was an amazing day out! Ferry takes you to the island and there's lots to do there! You can chill at the cafe, have drinks and nibbles, theres jet ski and kayak hire available. Else you can take the map and walk across the mountain for some breath taking views and private bays! Have a swim! Or find a spot and lay a picnic! Ferry ride was fun in itself, awesome crew as they let you stand on the deck and enjoy the ride! Sun screen and water is a must!

Urupaukapuka Island

We would highly recommend this trip. The ferry over is lovely and comfortable and when you get there the views on the walks are outstanding.

Great island experience

Super opportunity to explore one of NZ’s beautiful islands. Some quick walks allow you to share your half day experience across a number of Urupukapuka beaches. Timely service run by Explore to get us to the island and back to Paihia.

Just a ferry

It was OK. Nothing special though, just a regular ferry.
