note: we have recently changed our boat and we now have a newly refurbished Saunders 28’ called “Dolphin Endeavour” which is licensed for 16 passengers, ideal for exploring Kawau Bay and surrounding areas.

Dave and Helen look forward to welcoming you to their unique location on Kawau Island, Auckland, New Zealand. Take a special holiday break.

A 60 minute drive north of Auckland, and a short trip across in our comfortable boat "Dolphin Endeavour" from the seaside village of Sandspit, you will arrive at our private wharf in sheltered North Cove, Kawau Island.

Once you step ashore you will immediately feel the tranquillity and peacefulness of this wonderful island. You have no choice but to relax and enjoy the experience.

There are no roads on Kawau Island so the loudest sounds your will hear are the abundant native birds.
