Ever wanted to explore an island that has no road access?

Want to learn more about the people living there?

Here's your opportunity to enjoy the Royal Mail Run Cruise, today's treat from Kawau Cruises!

This is the largest mail run by water in the Southern Hemisphere, and is a delightfully relaxing way for people of all ages to learn about the history and natural beauty of Kawau Island.

You will cruise past beautiful bays, gaining a rare glimpse into life on an island without roads. From the comfort of the large and luxurious ferry you'll have uninterrupted 180 degree views of this scenic wonderland and historic landmarks, while your experienced and informative skipper guides you around over 75 different wharves delivering freight and mail to the island's residents.

While on the mail run, you can watch gannets diving for food and hear the melodic call of the tui - plus you mustn't forget to keep a watch out for penguins and dolphins!

For a little extra you can enjoy a traditional Kiwi BBQ lunch enjoyed aboard the boat, otherwise you can take a picnic ashore and enjoy it in the grounds of historic Mansion House and subtropical gardens, where weka, wallabies and peacocks abound.

A daytrip like this makes a fantastic outing for the whole family!

Departure times:

Cruises depart daily from Sandspit at 10:30am

Return ferry departs Mansion House Jetty at 2pm daily

On Saturdays, Sundays & public holidays, an additional 4:30pm departure from the Mansion House Jetty is also available

This is a once in a lifetime cruise, and definitely one you don't want to miss!
