Great Barrier Island is part of New Zealand, protecting the Hauraki Gulf and Auckland from the badly misnamed Pacific Ocean. When Sea Kayak Baja Mexico owner Ginni Callahan paddled around it with Henrick Lindstrom in 2015, they were enamored with the place. Since Ginni suffers from the “how can I share this with other kayakers” disease, she couldn’t rest until this trip came into being.
