White Island was beautiful and the trip out there was too. We stopped two times to watch dolphins.

We had a good (was a bit seasick) time on the boat, while watching dolphins and on the island itself. The crew was very friendly and helpful and also the guide was pretty nice.

Amazing volcano in the middle of the ocean. The way in might be hard if the waves are big, but totally worth it. Guides are going fast but take time to enjoy.

Kinda expensive, which is the only down point to it. You definitely get a big package for the money. Walking the island felt pretty surreal, so cool! The team took good care and was really fun and you get a lunch package.

Nice thing to do but quite expensive. Boat trip is really long but great chance to see dolphins (sometimes even whales).

Amazing nature with a nice little boat trip, but it was really expensive and our guide was talking in a bored way.

Nice trip to a natural volcanic island. From Whakatane reached by boat (3 hours return), approximately 2 hours spent walking on the island with a guide. Pretty bad smell mostly, worth it.
