Experience the best of the Rotorua Lakes aboard the luxury sailing catamaran Tiua on the fresh waters of Lake Rotoiti.

Fish for Rainbow Trout, soak in the lake edge thermal pools and hear stories & legends of the local Maori, all accompanied by fine wine and great food. Pure Cruise is an off the beaten track indulgence that is unmistakably New Zealand.

Amazing experience with Pure Cruise sailing on Lake Rotoiti. We cruised up to the hot pools and had a delicious hot soak whilst sitting right on the lake. Its a bucket list item for sure, no matter whether your a kiwi or tourist.

This trip is so well organised from the safety, the comfort, the enjoyment, the food and of course the weather! A trip we would all repeat. This was a Xmas function and Matt's young helper Laura even agreed to be a very 'lovely' Santa!
