Tiritiri Island is the perfect spot for some birdwatching and I absolutely recommend the guided walk. There was the option between a 1.5 or 2.5 hours guided walk and there was no surcharge if you wanted to take the longer walk. The volunteers had a great knowledge about the birds and nature and the hours flew by quickly.
A truly remarkable Island! Our guide, Hester, was fabulous, really knew her flora and fauna. We felt like we were in a different world surrounded by beautiful birds. Easy to walk around and explore. Just stunning...I and #39;m pretty sure we will be back!
Wish I had brought my bathing suit so we could have gone for a quick swim before returning home to downtown Auckland. . Lovely place and would definitely recommend this to bird enthusiasts
The trip was amazing. The guided tour was outstanding - both the botanical and bird information exceeded my expectations. The time flew by. Don't forget to take water and lunch.
Excellent tour on this island, it is very impressive for the volunteer Mr John, who is an gentlemen but knowledgeable, professional ,he took care of everyone in very details, especially he noticed we are from China, speak very clearly and little slowly, sothat we can get most of his speaking . It is wonderful tour to this island we learnt lot of history about this island and knowledge about various birds ,we are lucky we saw most of the kinds of birds living on the island. especially we were educated by these volunteers on how to be environment friendly. Again , appreciated all the hard work by John!
Being a birder, this tour did not disappoint. The ferry ride was a great start for the island exploration of all things natural. Upon reaching the island, the large group was separated into groups of approx. ten with the opportunity to have a tour of greatest interest. The volunteer guiding our group was very knowledgeable about many aspects of the island. So it was an excellent learning experience covering history, vegetation, as well as birds. The weather also cooperated to make for great memories.
Well worth the money. To experience how New Zealand birdlife once was, was magic!! We were very lucky with the weather and the ferry ride with Team NZ training in the harbour right along side of us. The work the volunteers have done clearing and establishing the tracks after the great eradication of pests 30 years ago should be recognised by the NZ public as well as their continued dedication.
The trip to Tiri was awesome. I just got the tickets from Viator as I had a 10 off coupon. You can purchase them directly from 360 Discovery for same price..Basically Viator purchase doesn't add any value to purchase itself unless you have a coupon.
We really enjoy birding, but we enjoyed the hiking as much as the birding on this trip. The ferry ride to the Island was also very enjoyable, with great views of Aukland.
This was the highlight of my visit! I was struck by the sheer dedication of the volunteers who have brought the flora and Fauna of this island back. We saw the pictures of the barren landscape in 1984! We heard and saw so many of the native birds listed as living on the island.
Bring a good camera along! Every visitor to New Zealand should see this lovely little paradise!
