Cruise across the pristine waters of the Bay of Plenty to White Island (Whakaari) – New Zealand’s most active volcano. After being fitted with hard hats and gas masks, guides will lead you on an exploration of the crater floor. Experience roaring fumaroles, sparkling sulphur chimneys, bubbling pools of mud and the spectacular main crater vent.
Along with the breathtaking scenery, visitors will learn about the island’s fascinating and often tragic history. While the return journey frequently provides an opportunity for viewing dolphins and other marine life.
Tours depart from Whakatane with shuttle service available from Rotorua and Tauranga.
