Overview
See magnificent scenery, lakeside homes, a historic dam, and rare birds on this Lake Wakatipu cruise from Queenstown. Experience lots of great photo opportunities that you wouldn’t see otherwise, and choose from being on the unobstructed sundeck, or the heated cabin. No need to worry about bringing supplies with you, as the boat has a onboard bar, with a good selection of beer, wine, and soft drinks.

We caught the 2:00 cruise and it was GREAT. There was plenty of space and the captain was very friendly and informative. He explained everything well and was very friendly. Would highly recommend this cruise.
