We can confirm that Zealandier Tours did not have any guests on the Island at the time.
We do not offer or host tours to White Island. The tours we offer from the Port of Tauranga visit attractions that are not within the vicinity of this destination.

It is business as usual for our team and all our tours are fully operational.
We continue to provide support to the tourism agencies involved in the White Island tragedy, and to other passengers on the Ovation of the Seas cruise ship, which stayed over in the Bay of Plenty for additional days.
