Seat in coach tour from Rotorua
White Island Tours with PeeJay gives you an in-depth guided tour of one of the world’s most interesting volcanoes. The island’s history is related in an informative way, with scientific information explained in an easy-to-understand manner.
The trip out to the island is approximately 80 minutes, depending on conditions, so there is plenty of time to take in the scenery and marine life and enjoy our commentary through the excellent microphone system on board. On the way out to the island our crew will issue everyone with safety gear, consisting of a hard hat and gas mask. Upon arrival at White Island, we anchor PeeJay and ferry everyone over to the island via inflatable boat to an existing concrete jetty. There is a short ladder to climb, a steel planking system to cross, and some boulders to negotiate before reaching the shore. Then it is time to start your exploration of New Zealand’s only live marine volcano. After feeling the awesome power of Mother Nature, sit back, relax and indulge in one of our delicious lunches on board PeeJay. On our trip home we might even be lucky enough to spend some time with dolphins, whales or the NZ Fur Seal.
