Unable to get on a glow worm cave trip, we looked for a lake cruise at the information desk, and picked Cruise Te Anau because its departure time fitted well with our plans. We arrived to be greeted by Peter, who proved a delightful skipper...More

With the majority of cruises in this area being day long, this is the only one that offers shorter 3 hour cruises which is exactly what we were after. The first point of interest was the operator (Peter) rang us the day before to discuss...More

This was a nice, slow cruise on the lake. The skipper was very informative of the area and freely (but not overly) shared his knowledge. I appreciated that he cruised the lake at a slow pace and didn't race around. The short little hike was...More

You could do worse than cruising on Lake Te Anau with the friendly and informative skipper, Peter. We had done the Milford Sound cruise the previous day but this was more relaxed and definitely less crowded, the forest walk was an excellent diversion.

We booked this trip based on recommendations from Tripadvisor and because we didn’t want to drive all the way to Milford Sound. We only rang the day before and Peter was happy to accommodate us despite the dubious weather forecast. It rained all day but...More
