The trip begins with a biosecurity check at the Whakatane Yacht Club Wharf, close to the isite followed by checking you on board the boat, Centaurus, a well appointed sailing catamaran. After a safety briefing from Baz, the skipper & with kayaks loaded, we head down the Whakatane River & out on to the ocean for the 50 minute trip to Whale Island. En-route we’ll give you a little history of the area and of Whale Island itself and brief you on kayak safety. We usually start at the most sheltered corner of the Island and give everyone an opportunity to become accustomed to kayaking on the ocean, before heading off on our tour. Wildlife encounters, whether New Zealand fur seals, little blue penguins or gannets plunging into the ocean are common
