Beautiful Waiheke Island

We finally got around to going to Waiheke Island, a place we have wanted to go since we first got here.  We were told it was absolutely amazing, especially in the summer, as the snorkeling is supposed to be unsurpassed.  Well, we are moving into Fall, so no snorkeling, but what we did do is have ourselves an island tour.  Jaguar Tours was the company we used and the driver, April was great!  She told us lots of interesting stuff about the island and made the tour enjoyable.  We first drove from Whangaparaoa over to Devonport to catch the ferry there.

Once we arrived we had to hop a bus to go find the town, well, we really didn’t know what town we were supposed to get off at, but the guy said the main town.  We went through this very small village and we saw the bank we were supposed to get off and stand near while waiting, but we thought surely it was too small to be the main town, so we kept going.   We told the bus driver where the tour place was so he just dropped us off there.  Pretty cool that they do that actually. It was a little stop and go with the tour guide as we weren’t supposed to go there and we kind of threw them off schedule, but it worked out in the end.

I don’t know the names of the places we went, so I am just going to give you the gallery to look at.  We had a great time and want to go back and do the sea kayaking there in the summer.

This is the sea kayak place we are gonna go to in the summer.
