Overview

Take off on an unforgettable adventure on a 2 hour White Island flight and Tour from Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty, to set foot and explore the crater of New Zealand’s most active volcano after an exhilarating flight.

Landing on the hissing and smoking crater floor of White Island evokes a feeling of a lunar landing, even if the island is a mere 52 kilometres off the coast of Bay of Plenty. Sitting on the Pacific Ring of Fire, ‘Whakaari’ as the Maori named it, has been continuously active. Boiling mud pools, sulphur-capped fumaroles, smoking volcanic vents, hot streams and the steaming Crater Lake evoke a sense of walking on a planet a world away from Earth.

Desolate as the landscape may look, it was once home to factory workers who extracted sulphur from the island. Reminders of their hard existence and abandoned mining ruins can still be seen today.
