After a visit to the Kiwi Birdlife Park we walked into Queenstown. We noticed that the cruise was about to leave. We were welcomed abroad by Wayne the Captain. He took us on a pleasant 90 minute cruise. His commentary was informative and humorous. He showed us the various settlements around the lakes and the bird life. He gave a... More

We enjoyed this boat trip showing the homes built around the lake shores. The commentary was very good and everything was made better by the fabulous weather. We were able to sit outside but the cabin looked very comfortable and would have had good views.

This was a spur of the moment decision after a friends comments that it was funny and great value. I thought he was talking it up but I now know he was right. This 90 min cruise on the stunning lake was provided with interesting and amusing commentary and helped you understand the spectacular vista of the mountains. The cash... More

This cruise takes your around one section of the lake. The scenery around Queenstown is stunning and this cruise provides you with another perspective. Wayne is a big personality and keeps the informative, and sometimes humorous, commentary running. His neighbours were waving to use from their homes! He goes out of his way to accommodate lots of fun photo opportunities... More

Me and my partner live in Queenstown and were pleasantly surprised by how many awesome facts Wayne could tell us. A brilliant trip worth every penny- engaging for the whole family! If you're just passing through or live here and want to know more about the history of NZ / QT, this is the perfect way to do so. Take... More

This is a great cruise & Wayne was very entertaining - but - the smokers lit up as soon as we departed the wharf & the cigarette smoke was impossible to get away from - even inside. This made the cruise frustrating rather than enjoyable - especially with kids. If you don't like spending 90 minutes trying to tolerate cigarette... More

Thank you Jillian for your feedback regarding smoking. Have had a talk to Wayne and we have decided to make our boat non-smoking. I must admit when we have charters I am always closing the back door as the smoke get sucked inside and its not good. Very sorry that the smokers ruined your trip. If you are ever back... More
