Had the very good fortune and was graced with awesome weather for a trip to the active volcano which is White Island off the pacific coast from Whakatane in the Bay of Plenty . The whole trip was very professionally run by the Pee Jay team . Couldn”t fault the guys at all . There is not many places in the world you can walk in a active volcano so weren”t surprised to be the only kiwis on the boat … not that we were worried . So if you don”t  want to climb a mountain to see a volcano then this is for you …
