The area around Kapiti Island provides good fishing – but you must stay clear of the reserves which are there to allow the fish to breed.

You may not land on Kapiti Island without permission because of its status as a nature reserve.  Two of the other islands – Tahoramaurea (Browns Island) and Tokomapuna (Aeroplane Island), may be landed on only if absolutely necessary while Motungarara (Fishermans Island) is inhabited and all are under  Maori land ownership.
