A day trip to Kapiti Island departs from the carpark of the Kapiti Boating Club and Kapiti Coastguard at the sea end of Kapiti Road, Paraparaumu Beach.
Where to Start Your Journey
Standard departure time is 8.45am, returning to the beach by 3.00pm. Check in is 15 minutes before departure. On days with multiple trips departures times may vary, but all visitors have the same length of time on the island (approximately 5 hours). It is a 15 -20 minute trip to the island.
A Department of Conservation (DOC) permit is required to access the island and payment includes the DOC permit, the return ferry trip, and an introductory talk on the Island. For the DOC permit we do need an address (town, country) the names of all those traveling and we do need an age indication for all passengers (under 17, 18- 35, 35- 65,65+).
We also need a mobile phone number for the weather check in the morning and for safety on the island. Passengers must phone in at 7.30am on the actual day for a weather check if they have not received a text from us.
Guided walks are also available. Spend the first hour after the Introductory Talk with a guide who will help you find and identify the birds and their calls, point out and explain the special bush features on the island and discuss more of the Island history. Only $12 per person and limited to 8 people per guide.
We cater for individual travelers and groups of different sizes.
Trips to the Island are weather dependent and need to be confirmed on the morning of your trip by calling 0800 433779 between 7:15am and 7:30am if you have not received a text from us. Before you travel please make sure you have read the DOC Conditions of Entry. It is especially important that food is in sealed bags/containers and that all gear is free of dirt and seeds.
We operate from 1st September to 5th June each year.
Prices Per Person incl GST (includes Doc Permit, Access Fee and Ferry*)* DOC permit and access fees contribute to the ongoing maintenance on Kapiti
