This half day excursion to Browns Island is the perfect trip for anyone who wants an exciting and informative day on Auckland's Waitemata Harbor.
Browns Island, also known as Motukorea (island of the pied oystercatcher bird), is one of the best-preserved volcanoes in the Auckland Volcanic Field. Private boats and sea kayaks are the only means of access to this untouched island.
Accompanied by your guide, you will paddle until Motukorea. You will then trek to the summit, taking in the panoramic views as you go and learning about the island’s fascinating history. There are 3 ancient pa sites (Maori fortified village) on the island, with the largest occupying the slopes of the main scoria cone.
Light refreshments are provided in the island before you head back into the Auckland skyline.
