White Island

Not many people can say with hand on heart that they’ve stood on an active volcano. But once you set foot on White Island you’ll never look back.

White Island, also known as Whakaari, is the only active marine volcano in New Zealand. It has experienced dozens of small scale eruptions since the early 1800s.

Lying off the coast of Whakatane, you can see it from the town itself. Getting there involves either flying - you can opt for a scenic flight and bird’s eye view, or touch down in a helicopter and actually disembark on the island - or a boat trip. You’ll cruise the 50 km offshore - who knows, you might even spot whales and dolphins en route - before reaching White Island and its other worldly, almost lunar landscapes.

The desolate land is painted in vivid whites, yellows and reds, with bubbling pools and roiling mud. You will hear as well as see its might - White Island positively hisses and roars as steam rises up from its vents. The geothermal activity is fascinating to observe, as are the remains of a one time sulphur mining factory that once existed on White Island

Walking tours of White Island are quite an extraordinary experience. You can enter the main crater (you’ll need to wear hard hat and gas mask, which will be provided). White Island is about 2 km in diameter and over 300 metres above sea level. However it extends deep into the ocean’s depths - with most of the volcano submerged, this means minimal climbing for you when ashore.

Understandably, tours are weather dependent and departure times may change at short notice.

Marine life is also abundant around White Island. This means that the area is ripe for fishing and diving, too. Operators offer dive tours and you can charter a boat for a fishing outing, even a multi day one.


Great value - thanks! Definitely will recommend you to my friends.
