Mōtītī Island is located 21-kilometres north-east from the coast of Tauranga and is home to a small population of locals, avocado orchards and agricultural farms on privately owned land.

There are plenty of sheltered coves and inlets which are perfect for snorkelling, diving, swimming, kayaking and just relaxing!

Keen to check it out? Jump on board a Dolphin & Wildlife Cruise with Bay Explorer and they'll take you near the island (they don't land there out of respect for the residents) - it's a great way to see the stunning inlets and beautiful bays.
