Nature Tours and Accommodation on Kapiti Island
Experience the best of New Zealand nature and hospitality
Kapiti Island is one of New Zealand's oldest and most important nature reserves, and a place rich in human history. Our family first arrived on Kapiti in 1820, and have been welcoming visitors to the island for generations. Join us for an unforgettable experience, surrounded by many of New Zealand's most beautiful and endangered species.
You can visit Kapiti Island for a day tour, or truly experience all the island has to offer with an overnight stay at the lodge. Kapiti Island Nature Tours offer the only chance to spend the night on Kapiti where our family will tell you the stories of the island that is so close to our hearts, and show you the true beauty of New Zealand the way it was.
A trip to Kapiti Island is dependent on sea & weather conditions. Kapiti Island Nature Tours operate from September 1st to May 30th.
Sailings are usually daily from October to May, and Friday to Sunday in September, depending on visitor demand. This can vary though, so please don’t hesitate to call or email us to check availability.
Between Christmas & New Year we close the Lodge for whanau (family) time but the ferry continues to operate for day trips only, aside from on Christmas Day & New Years Day.
Please note our rates specified on our website are per person.
