Situated 50 kilometers offshore, this permanently active island volcano constantly emits a cloud of  steam and periodically erupts to a greater extent expelling volcanic ash several thousand meters into the atmosphere. The main vent is below sea level protected by the crater walls and is responsible for the activity in the islands crater lake and volcanic vents (fumeroles) . The island once mined for sulphur has a colorful past and remnants of mining ruins remain today. White Island is surrounded by waters rich in fish life and the area is a renowned fishery for Yellow tail Kingfish and in the summer months game fish and Dolphins abound. On the Island there are several Gannet colonies and the remnants of a once thriving Pohutakawa Forest. Visiting the island is a lifetime experience not to be missed!
