  • At 9km off the coast of Whakatāne this place is amazing and I think everyone who comes to this part of the world should visit. There is huge range of threatened wild life that is normally quite difficult to see. We saw Tuatara in the wild, Tīeke, Kakariki and even had a run in with a fur seal. I would recommend going with white island tours.
