Communications prior to our trip to Kapiti was very helpful. On arrival at the Kapiti boating club we were greeted warmly and were given clear concise instructions about the ferry ride over to the island. On landing we were again warmly greeted by a staff member (Cindy). She gave us a good, fun talk about the island, it's history and the flora, fauna and wildlife (birds). We then had the option of a guided tour or to take the track to the summit.

This was not just a bush walk in a wonderful setting; the staff were very friendly and their knowledge regarding the history, the birds and features of the island was extensive and interesting. This added greatly to a very memorable experience. The day was well organized (the weather was perfect) and our family thoroughly enjoyed the whole adventure. We would recommend this trip.

What a great day on the island such a great island with plenty to see and do The boat rew where magnificent from the easy check in process to the safety brief on the boat, Coops and his crew were not only professional but were both polite and knowledgeable of the history of the island, that's team.
