Cruising the Lake Wakatipu waters was a relaxing experience, with unimaginable beauty all around. The Captain was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a nice orientation to the surrounding islands, mountains and waters of Queenstown.

Awesome boat and relaxing trip enjoying the sights that Queenstown lakes have to offer. Captain allowed you to visit him and the boat has a comfortable downstairs deck and upstairs deck is open. Great for getting those pictures of the local scenery.
