We’d decided we’d like to take a trip out onto the lake to see the Maori carvings and spotted this particular tour. It was a few dollars more expensive than the next one but in a great boat and offering a slightly shorter cruise, which...More

Thank-you for your great review, so pleased you had such a wonderful time - I will pass your comments on to Simon. Come back and see us again some day!
Such a wonderful experience. Staff were awesome, very knowledgeable and friendly. Pirate Pete (skipper) showed me how the ducks would eat the bread out of my mouth (a must try out on the boat). Recommend to anybody.
So pleased you enjoyed your time on Cruise Cat, hope see you again some time. Many thanks for the review.

Thank-you for your great review, we appreciate you taking the time.
