Wilderness & Ecotourism

Geology Tours & field trips:
Pitt Island has some of the oldest and youngest geology visible in New Zealand. New discoveries are still being made. On Pitt Island you can observe the oldest-known formation of sedimentary rocks in the Chathams. They are between 90 and 100 million years old. They are of special interest because they are organic-rich and suitable as potential 'source rocks' for the generation of oil and gas. To do so however, they need to be buried by about 5,000 metres of sediment. Nowhere else can such rocks be observed on land yet this formation is widespread deep below the sea floor in many places on the Chatham Rise.
Several Geology tours already take place each year, please enquire to book your place.

Birders:
A birdwatchers paradise. There are no less than 52 native bird species on the Chatham Islands of which 18 breed no where else in the World. The vast majority of these species can be seen on and around Pitt Island. Species include: CI Tui, CI Tomtit, CI Fantail, Forbes Parakeet, CI Red Crown Parakeet, CI Warbler, CI Pipit, CI Snipe (maybe),CI Oystercatcher, CI Petrel, Royal Albatross (new colony) Antipodean Albatross, CI Mollymawk, CI Blue Penguin, CI Shag, Pitt Island Shag. And while we are not permitted to land on Mangere or Rangatira Islands, there is the possibility of seeing the famous CI Black Robin from the water.

Pitt Island is a wild, remote place, often subject to extreme weather. Even during the warm summer months there can be strong winds, making getting on and off the island tricky, but that's all part of the excitement.
Getting on, off and around Pitt Island poses some inherent - although minimal - risk. The Lodge will do their utmost to make you feel welcome and comfortable, with your safety their priority. However, they can accept no responsibility for delays caused by weather or other reasons beyond our control.
 
Guests are encouraged to get out and see Pitt Island. This involves boarding airplanes, boats, 4x4 vehicles and quad bikes; walking, climbing hills, rock hopping and standing on cliff tops - but only if you want to. You may just enjoy blobbing out with a glass of wine and a good book,the lodge has an extensive library on all things Chathams.
