For now though - let's take a look at your Bring The Kids adventure itinerary.
Your family adventure begins with an exciting and scenic 30 minute flight from Auckland Airport, across the Hauraki Gulf to Great Barrier Island. We'll meet you on arrival and show you to your rental car. Be sure to visit the I-site at the Claris Airport and grab all the activity brochures and explorer maps you'll be needing.
Right - Get out there and explore...
Check out the Community Art Gallery and museum. The Milk, Honey and Grain Museum is lots of fun too!
Take a dip in the coolest Mermaid pool ever... feed the troops at My Fat Puku Cafe, catch a fish off the wharf or simply hit the beach.
Grab the sunscreen, your towels and something warm for later on - today you're off on your Adventure Cruise with Sundancer Charters. Your skipper will be waiting for you to board by 9am. The cruise includes a 5 hour boat tour departing from and returning to Whangaparapara with a delicious lunch served on board. It incorporates sightseeing in the Whangaparapara Harbour and explores the beautiful Broken Islands area, the entrance to Fitzroy Harbour, Man O War passage and Kaikoura Island. You'll also visit Glenfern Sanctuary and enjoy a guided tour of this bird lover's paradise. Your skipper will find a nice, sheltered bay where the kids can enjoy a swim or some paddleboarding while your lunch is being prepared.
Keep an eye out for dolphins and whales on the return journey to Whangaparapara wharf.
You can't come to Great Barrier Island and not visit the natural Kaitoke Hot Springs for a hot soak. You'll find the car park on Whangaparapara road. Allow yourselves 35 minutes walking each way. Don't forget the Windy Canyon bushwalk either, it's amazing! It's only minutes from the car park at the top of Aotea Road on the way north to Port Fitzroy. There's so much to do and explore on Great Barrier Island. Just be sure to make it back to Claris Airport in time for your afternoon flight home.
