Cape Kidnappers

One of the biggest gannet colonies in New Zealand, Cape Kidnappers is also a spectacular example of past volcanic eruptions and seismic events. It received it’s name from captain Cook after local Maoris attempted to kidnap a young Tahitian boy from his ship “Endeavour”. A family of more than 15,000 members, the Booby family of gannets make their home at cape kidnappers while they raise their young. A great place to get Gannets and cape Kidnappers photos.
