Day Trips to Kapiti Island - Tour Nature's Paradise
Visit Kapiti Island, New Zealand's internationally renowned nature reserve and bird sanctuary and discover some of the world's rarest birds in a wild and natural environment.
Kapiti Island Nature Reserve is just five kilometres from the mainland yet it has a unique and fascinating flora and fauna and is home to many of New Zealands most endangered birds. Experience how New Zealand must have been over 100 years ago. En route to Kapiti Island, pass through the Kapiti Marine Reserve and watch for passing whales and dolphins. Lookout for the sea birds that frequent the coastal waters - gulls, gannets, penguins, terns, shags, shearwaters and albatross.
Kapiti Island was made a fauna and flora reserve in 1897 and on arrival at the island your guide will tell you more about the history of the island and how Kapiti has played an important part in the New Zealand conservation story, and still does today. In the visitor shelter our guide will go talk about the birds you are likely to see and share the current status of the endangered species and new arrivals. Your guide will explain the walking options - whether you are walking to the summit (521 metres) or are meandering on the lowland tracks and what you will likely see. Most birds and the impressive forest are to be found below the 250 metre level. You can walk Kapiti Island and watch the birds at your own pace or just relax for a wonderful day. Guided walks are also available.
Trips to the Island are weather dependent and need to be confirmed on the morning of our trip.
