Fantastic lake cruise

The day we travelled the lake was calm and beautiful. There were only four other couples on board so it was very relaxing and we meet some very lovely people. The crew were very knowledgeable about the area and lake history pointing out points of interest. The skipper even allowed some of us to have a turn at the wheel which was really cool. We all enjoyed the complimentary hot drinks and the muffins were delicious. Thanks to the crew we had a great morning out on lake Taupo. Would recommend this as a must do trip.

The journey out to the rocks was great. Our skipper gave us a run down of local history. A beautiful day meant we could see the mountains in the distance. A spot of fishing was exciting for some of the younger passengers on board. We also enjoyed a taste of one of the catches. The journey back was relaxing. A moment to capture!

Fantastic cruise! Really catered to our young children aged 4, 7 who we lucky enough to steer the boat. Impressive narration throughout and the Maori rock carvings are quite something. To top it all off caught two decent trout! This was well organised, great value for money and family friendly!
