Magical experience cruising out to Tiri Tiri Matangi on a comfortable Explore Vessel, spotting a wonderful pod of Common Dolphins on the way. The Island is an absolute must visit for everyone, being a wonder of conservation and home to many endangered birds. Pay for a guided tour which at $10, is a steal. Our wonderful volunteer guide Neal drew our eye to many aspects of the Island we would otherwise have missed. Neal was amazingly passionate and knowledgeable, but I'm sure all the other guides would be fantastic too. Stay overnight on the Island to maximise enjoyment of the walking tracks, historical buildings, beaches, bird watching, the Dawn Chorus and Kiwi spotting. Thank you DOC and Supporters of Tiri Tiri Matangi for a wonderful, unbeatable experience!
