This unique tour will engage visitors in a completely different Kāpiti Island experience. Visits to historically rich occupation sites, Māori settlement, whaling and farming remnants, followed by the remarkable conservation story of the Kāpiti Island Nature Reserve, and Marine Reserve.
The tour is a combination of cruise/visit and on-island walking - approximately 2 hours cruising and 4 hours on the island - expert local guides will bring rarely exposed highlights and moments, not routinely experienced on a Kāpiti Island visit. Lunch is included on Island.
Early/advanced bookings are essential as participating numbers are limited to 24 per tour.

Health & Safety: Whatever time of year you visit it’s always a good idea to bring good walking shoes or boots, a water bottle, your camera, and a small backpack to carry your lunch & any spare clothes. The weather can be changeable so wearing clothing you can layer is recommended. We’d also suggest bringing a light jacket, sunhat & sunscreen - the New Zealand sun can be quite strong.
