New Zealand is entrusted with a magnificent collection of volcanic islands teeming with native wildlife. Join us on one of our highly informative tours to learn about the history and culture of the surrounding area, and take in the beautiful scenery unique to our lands.
Some of the most popular attractions in Auckland are the kayak tours. The six-hour tour to Rangitoto Volcano is a fantastic sunset adventure with a 75-minute paddle across the Waitemata Harbour, followed by a walk up to the crater to enjoy a spectacular sunset view over the Hauraki Gulf, and then a starlit paddle home. Unforgettable. If that sounds a bit ambitious why not try the 3-hour tour which takes you across Auckland Harbour to Devonport and a guided tour of the WWII bunkers.
A 3 hour tour from Fergs Kayak’s Okahu Bay base to the historic neighbourhood and military base of Devonport. The first and only to offer this sea kayak tour, Fergs has been taking guests to North Head for over 25 years.
The paddle takes about 30 minutes to cross the harbour to the golden sands of Cheltenham beach with a walk up to North Head (Maungauika) to view the old military barracks, tunnels and historic gun emplacements that once protected the city in times of conflict. A 10 minute walk will reward you at the summit with stunning 360 degree views of the central city, northern suburbs and surrounding Hauraki Gulf.

An exciting half day trip out on the Waitemata Harbour to Motokorea, commonly known as Browns Island, one of the most beautiful but least visited volcanic islands in the Waitemata Harbour. As there is no public jetty or ferry service,the Island can only be accessed by private boat or sea kayak.
Your Fergs guides will meet you at nearby St. Heliers beach then once packed and safety briefings are complete the group will depart for a 45 minute paddle to one of the Motukorea’s sandy beaches. A short 15 minute hike to the summit above the crater reveals stunning 360 degree views of the city and surrounding islands in the Gulf where you will learn about the history of this unique part of Auckland’s landscape.Depending on conditions we will depart and circle the Island before making our way back via the sheltered cliffs of Gentlemans Bay to St Heliers.
