White Island Tour and Getaway

Escape to Whakatane and explore White Island.

Escape to Whakatane and explore White Island.

Stay at the White Island Rendezvous, situated opposite the picturesque Whakatane Wharf and within walking distance of the town centre and many fine restaurants. With beautiful rooms, an onsite café, and a host of helpful friendly staff. It is also the base of operations for all trips to White Island Volcano & Moutohora (Whale) Island Sanctuary. 

Cruise across the pristine waters of the Bay of Plenty to White Island (Whakaari), New Zealand’s most active volcano. Relax in comfort on the sleek and modern boat for your journey to the island, which provides the opportunity to spend time viewing dolphins, whales and other marine life.

Stepping onto White Island is like stepping onto the surface of Mars. It is completely unlike anything you would have experienced to date. You will be amazed at the different rock & sulphur formations, and entranced by the guides stories of how the volcano was mined for minerals many years ago.

This package offers it all - not only do you get to set foot on a live marine volcano, but you also enjoy an escape in the beautiful Eastern Bay of Plenty.


Please note that all tours to White Island (Whakaari) are weather dependent. Gift vouchers will be provided in the event that the tour is cancelled during your stay.
