Following an increasing number of potential safety incidents on KiwiRail’s Great Journeys of New Zealand scenic rail services, the outdoor viewing carriage on the Northern Explorer only will be closed until further notice while a safety solution is found.
Our regular gannet tours are perfect for individuals and small groups, up to 8 people. You'll enjoy your gannet tour of the world's largest, most accessible gannet colony whilst travelling through spectacular Hawke's Bay scenery in air conditioned comfort in our specialised 4x4 vehicles. And with Gannet Safaris you will get you closer to the gannets at Cape Kidnappers than with any other tour.
During your tour there will be many fabulous photo opportunities which will leave you with fond memories we hope you will share with your family and friends.
All this will take approximately 3 hours and you need not take a step if you don't want to!
Pick up and Drop off at Hastings iSite Visitor Centre.
