“Rangitoto Island - Ferry trip from Auckland, NZ”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Visited the Rangitoto island by taking the Fullers Ferry from Auckland, NZ.

Rangitoto Island is a volcanic island in the Hauraki Gulf near Auckland, New Zealand. Great island to visit.

Important information to note, no stores or commercial establishments on the island. Must carry own food and water.

Website of the ferry:

“Do this while you are in Auckland”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I take all our Auckland visitors to Rangitoto. How many other cities in the world, have a volcano in the harbour. It erupted from the sea around 600 years ago, but is today an extinct volcano. A great walk in bush and the historic old baches are an interesting part of NZ history. http://www.rangitoto.org/ If you find walking difficult still go and take the buggy ride.

“Great day out”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We had a wonderful day out on Rangitoto Island. Great views, exciting caves and easy paths to follow. Be sure to pack a nice lunch, drink and take your rubbish back with you to keep this island clean and green.

“good trip”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

I decided to visit Rangitoto island to see the lava field, vegetation and the shield volcano cone.
On one point I felt like in the forest which was in the former television show - Xapatan (La piste de Xapatan).
The ferry trip was fast with some good views over Auckland harbor and surrounding area.
