Activity description

Located in the middle of Lake Rotorua, Mokoia Island is the site of one of New Zealand's most famous love stories and the home of some of the most notorious Maori warriors and tribes.

A percentage of each fare goes towards the Mokoia Island Trust. This helps with the development and maintenance of the island. The Island is managed in conjunction with the Department of Conservation and relies heavily on this income to sustain the Wildlife Sanctuary and preserve the habitat for future generations.

All excursions to the island are accompanied by experienced guides that walk you through the birdlife, wildlife, cultural events, history and geography of the island. This is one of the area’s most unique experiences, made even more exciting with the addition of the jet boat ride to and from the Island.

This trip includes:
- Jet boat ride
- Bird watching
- Info about Maori culture
- Walk
- Hot pools
