Guy and Willie picked us up at wharf in their very cool little wooden cruiser on a beautiful sunny afternoon last week. Two very helpful and informative hosts. We cruised for about 30 minutes to hot pools where they dropped us off and advised we could stay as long as we wished. Swum in hot pools (which are very hot) and in the lake, and boys enjoyed the slide into the lake plus dived off pontoon. Spent a very pleasant couple of hours and then cruised back to shore again. Boys (aged 17 and 14) helped to drive the boat back which was a welcome part of the experience. Will be back next summer to try the fishing. Highly recommended.

Today we spent the day out on the lake with Guy & Willy. We enjoyed excellent hospitality, good fish guiding and a fantastic family day out on their refurbished boat. They had an excellent attitude and we're very focused yet flexible to ensure we enjoyed a great day out doing what we wanted to do. There are many options on the lake including fishing, swimming, kayaking, & the hot pools. Many thanks for a great day, and the trout was awesome.
