    See travelogue for more about our interesting adventure trip to White Island with Pee Jay's Adventures, on the Pee Jay V (holds about 60 passengers, and they also have 1 smaller boat)

    The guides on board and on the island are informative without being too technical. They really looked after me when I was seasick both ways.

    Volcano - White Island

    White Island..the moon!

    We went on a tour to White Island about 2 weeks ago, it was amazing trip. Its New Zealand’s only live marine volcano. The trip does take most of the day (about 5-7 hours). I took over 300 photos of White Island, and if you are here in NZ then White Island should be on your list.

    White Island: steam and mud

    White Island is New Zealand's most active volcano about 50 km's off the coast of Whakatane.

    The best way to visit this incredible spectacular spot is to take a guided boat tour with White Island Tours.

    See for more details my White Island page/tips and travelogues.

    Go over the hill to a great beach at Ohope. You can surf there, but it is also great swimming. Over the summer it is really popular with campers.
