Aldermen Islands Scenic Boat Tour

Characterised by its distinctive rocky profiles and amazing wildlife, the Aldermen Islands are a favourite. An important nature reserve, it is regarded as one of the best open water dive sites in New Zealand.


This tour stands alone from all others in its rich history, wildlife, and pure New Zealand beauty. Also known as the Vanishing Volcanoes, this unique island chain consists of amazing rhyolite domes, sweeping cliff faces stretching hundreds of metres vertically into the air, and is littered with endemic flora and fauna not found anywhere on the mainland. Adding to the mystique of this magical place is the marine life commonly seen in the area. Regarded as one of Aotearoa's finest diving locations, you never know what you might see on one of our tours. Sightings may include whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles and all manner of graceful seabirds.
