Located in the Auckland region
Rangitoto Island is in the Hauraki Gulf close to Auckland city.
There are two wharves – Rangitoto Wharf, serviced by public ferries; and Islington Bay Wharf, a popular anchorage for private boats. Private boats may use the wharves for loading and unloading passengers only.
You can take a public passenger ferry or charter.
Find authorised transport operators to this island.
Rangitoto is also accessible to experienced kayakers. It takes approximately two hours to kayak to Rangitoto Wharf from the Auckland's North Shore.
Wasp presence increases over the warmer months. If you have an allergy to wasp stings make sure you have appropriate medications to deal with any reactions.
Take care not to miss your ferry. There is no overnight accommodation and alternative transport back to the mainland is expensive.
Hauraki Gulf Maritime Park bylaws apply. Do not light fires (including barbeques), or remove/disturb plants and artefacts. No bicycles or pets. Take your rubbish with you – there are no rubbish bins. Rules apply to the land and extend to the lowest point reached by a low tide.
Some activities require a permit, such as weddings and events.
