Whangamata: Donut Island Guided Kayaking Experience

1. Whangamata: Donut Island Guided Kayaking Experience

Embark on a short kayaking tour to Donut Island, an area which is beginning to assume iconic status alongside other regional attractions in the Coromandel. The stunning Donut Island is one of a group of islands off the coast of Whangamata which have wildlife sanctuary status. As Guardians of the islands, this tour encourages you to treat the islands with respect to preserve their future. Because of the island’s geography, access is limited due to swell and wind conditions, and only kayaks or paddleboards can squeeze through the narrow entrance. The island is a wildlife sanctuary and opens up into a beautiful lagoon which is rather out of this world. Join the experienced team on an adventure that takes you 600m off the coast of Whangamata Beach, to a secluded turquoise lagoon surrounded by native fauna and volcanic cliff rock.
