Day out at Kaipupu Point

A day out in the Sounds: Visit Kaipupu Point Sanctuary

Join Beachcomber Cruises as we transport you by boat to Kaipupu point to see Bellbirds, Tui, Robin, Saddlebacks, Kiwi, and other endangered birds.

You will get to enjoy 2 hours on Kaipupu point, take a self guided walk and explore this beautiful island.
Make sure you get the Toyota Kiwi Guardians code at the lookout, then go to the DOC website and put in the Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary code word to receive a Kiwi Guardians certificate and medal for this adventure.

Kaipupu Point is a community project which aims to restore a 40 hectare 'mainland island' in Picton harbour. We are pleased to be able to offer water transport across to the sanctuary working alongside the Kaipupu Point Sanctuary Trust and DOC to ensure the safe running and protection of these native birds.

$1 of every ticket sold will go directly to the Kaipupu Point Trust.
