All cruises are 90 minutes duration. NZ$39-00 per person, $15-00 for children under 15.

It was just luck that we discovered this cruise and it made our trip. There are no downsides to this 90 minute cruise around Lake Wakatipu, which is great value and good entertainment. Captain Wayne is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed every minute of the journey. The cruise is very good for those with children. The boat is safe and warm with snacks and drinks available to buy. The views of the Remarkables are the highlight. Recommend.

Thanks Laureen for your 5 star review!! So pleased to hear that you enjoyed our cruise and that Wayne is still doing a great job after all these years. Hope the rest of your stay in Queenstown was just as good.

Wayne was our skipper, from the moment we stepped on board with a true Southern kiwi greeting until we stepped off everything was fantastic. Wayne was very informative and couldn't do enough for all aboard. I have a feeling he could have a second career as a photographer!
