My kids and I absolutely loved our jetboat ride with Kurt! It was their first time and they were nervous, but soon trusted Kurt's expertise behind the wheel and were laughing and woohooing. The island was amazing! So much birdlife - more saddlebacks than I've ever seen before -

Hi there, We are all stoked you enjoyed your time with us and on Mokoia Island. The birdlife is amazing and Kurt is indeed very passionate about this being a great photographer himself. We are so lucky to be able to share this privately owned Island . Not many places in new Zealand that you can see these types of wonders. cheers Fiona
