If you're travelling on a budget this might seem a little steep, however, transport from downtown is provided as well as dinner and treats, and a first class guide (Tom) that will take care of you! I have basic kayak experience and was a little nervous, but once we got going I

Heather, thank you for taking the time on reviewing lour Sunset tour to Rangitoto. We really appreciate it. The last ferry back to the city from the island is at 4 pm and with no public accommodation on the island it is great to have very few other people on the island. Also thank you for the positive review on Tom. He is a very well traveled and loves been back in his home town of Auckland and show of his playground to other Aucklander's and travelers alike. Thanks again for your review.

Hey Mark and Linda. Great to hear that you had a good trip and felt it was safe at all times. It is the nature of outdoor activities that the conditions are different to what is forecast and safety is always the priority. As stated in our email to you, we advised your booking agent, Viator, the day after the tour that a partial refund was required and they informed us this had taken place. This was emailed to the address you placed in your booking. Thanks again for paddling with us and email us if you have any further questions

I totally recommend kayaking with Auckland Sea Kayaks to Rangitoto Island - the largest and youngest of Auckland's volcanos. (Dormant for 600 years) An enjoyable approx hour 🛶paddle to/from the island, a 🍃🌿nature filled scenic walk to the summit for sunset, and a 🍽️yummy

The weather forced us to change the date of our trip, but staff a very accommodating to give us an equivalent tour the day and time available to us. Staff was super friendly and made sure we (two females) got home safe at the end of our trip which ended close to midnight.
