This 90 minutes cruise around the lake is not an adrenaline pumping, all out assault on the senses that there is plenty of around Queenstown. It is genteel and pleasant and informative. There is an honesty bar for a drink and small snacks, a comfy boat with ample indoor and outdoor seating and plenty of information delivered with a touch of quirky Kiwi humour. All up, an excellent way to see Queenstown from the lake, have a little bit of “down time” after all the other energetic pursuits and a great way to spend an hour and a half relaxing. Shout out to our Captain Max who absolutely made the trip.

it was great to be able to hear a running commentary about the area. We got close to the edges of the far end near the bridge and hear all about settlement of the area. Got to take hold of the wheel!

We took the Million Dollar Cruise on the recommendation of someone whom we saw getting off it the previous day. It was a great call. Not only was it inexpensive ( just $39 per person) but it was also very interesting. The Captain for the day, Max, did a brilliant job of telling us all about the sights we were seeing and explaining how boats have to navigate through shallow channels at the far end of the Lake. He also gave everyone the opportunity to have their photo taken wearing the Captain's hat while "steering" the boat. A splendid outing!
