Moutohora (Whale Island)


Moutohora (Whale Island) is home to rare and endangered flora and fauna. The island can only be visited with an official tour provider. Dig in the low tide and enjoy an impromptu spa in the hot spring water welling out of the sand. Observe rare blue penguins nesting in the rocky foreshore as fur seals raise their pups in the vicinity. The small 1.4 km island is a remnant of a complex volcano which has eroded, leaving two peaks. There are hot springs on the island in Sulphur Valley and McEwans Bay.
