Thanks Peter. It's quite good fun when windy isn't it? The boat is great in the wind and makes for an exciting journey out in the main part of the lake. Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves.

We took this cruise today and it was great. Very pretty views around the lake and the captain knew his historical facts and made it very interesting. Nice casual afternoon out.

The Million Dollar Cruise was very informative and a nice relaxing way to spend a few hours on the lake. The views were stunning and the boat was not overcrowded. There was plenty of space to move around to get the photos that you wanted to take. The price was reasonable and it was good value for money overall.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Million Dollar Cruise in Queenstown. The boat was roomy, quiet and very clean. There was a self serve bar and we had a great Captain. His name was Max. He was very informative, polite, knowledgeable and humorous. Trip made for a wonderful afternoon

Great to hear you enjoyed our cruise Manualgrad. Good to hear that Max is still doing a good job after all these years. Will pass on the kind words to him.

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.

Thank Wendy G
