wow. the secenry hear is lovely. and despite being on an island its very quiet and serene. the bird life of-course adds to the overall enjoyment. so worth a trip. i would recommend this to absolutely anyone. i will be going again soon.
we have been twice to kapiti island, the boat ride across alone is well worth the fee you pay. then the veiw, we have told a number of freinds about this trip. in fact the 2nd time we went we took atleast a dozen of our freinds. my husband particularly enjoyed the ride back as it was rather choppy, d.o.c work hard to keep this island free of unwanted visitors, thats animal not human. however we would advise to book the earlier trip as birds are more redily visible, we say this as we have been on both cruises and the second was not as easy to see the birds.
