To add to Penny's comments I did a day trip to Tiri in December 1997.
You can book through one of the ferry operators in Auckland Harbour. 
I think it runs twice a week.  Absolutely the best way to see many of 
NZ's interesting birds. Easy views of Takahe (my all-time 
favourite!), Brown Teal, Stichbird, Saddleback, etc. 
Indicate you are a birder to one of the guides and you will be given 
special treatment.
For Kiwi a night stop-over would be necessary. I think this can be 
arranged. Suggest you contact the relevant tourism authority.
Unfortunately I have loaned my brochure/info on Tiri to someone who 
has yet to return it!
Have a great trip.
