Guide Bio

John Barrett is one of the owners and operators of Kapiti Island Nature Tours (formerly Kapiti Island Alive).  John’s family has been living on Kapiti Island since the 1820s; because of this, John feels a deep connection to the land, where they offer the only accommodation.  John believes in sustainability, and makes use of alternative fuel sources, recycling programs, and the consumption of local food in order to live up to his beliefs.  As the only accommodation option on Kapiti, John strives to share the island with the world in a way that is both good for tourists as well as the environment and wildlife that share his home.  Kapiti Island Nature Tours has knowledgeable guides whom offer day tours, walks, seafood gathering, traditional flax weaving, and other tours to allow you to truly experience the beauty of this New Zealand paradise.
