“Paradise at our doorstep”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We are a newly married couple who visited Queenstown for our honeymoon. One of the attractions we went on and recommend is the Million Dollar Cruise. Family owned and operated this cruise around the calm, mountianous surrounding lake was very laid back. You got to also find out a lot about Queenston which was very interesting.

If you like scenery, a relaxed environment with snacks and drink available and a bit of history to go with it, then this is the attraction for you...

Thank you to Wyane our captian, host and story teller. My husband and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed our experience aboard your lovely boat. You were a bit of a character full of life, and love you showed for Queenstown (your home town).

Thank you again

Brad and Cara

“Great cruise”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Excellent cruise and good value for many. Our skipper (Max) was great, full of interesting info and my kids got to steer the boat wearing the captain's hat. Awesome. Definitely worth doing while in Queenstown.

“Queenstown Lake Million Dollar Cruise”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Very good value for money. 90 min cruise, $35.00 NZD pp. Max our captain was very informative & went the extra bit delaying departure as one of our group hunted for a carpark! Much appreciated. Beautiful Queenstown evening to cruise along the lake. Kids enjoyed watching him feed the trout in the wharf prior to setting off.
