This is the perfect trip for anyone who wants a exciting and informative day on Auckland's Waitamata 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.

On arriving at Motukorea, we trek to the summit, taking in the panoramic views as we go and learning about the island’s fascinating history. There are three ancient pa sites on the island (Maori fortified village), with the largest occupying the slopes of the main scoria cone.

Light refreshments are provided on the island before we head back into the Auckland skyline.
