We really loved our morning excursion to the island in the lake with Davy. He has a beautiful boat and we enjoyed riding around on a lovely sunny morning. The walk to the lake at the top of the mountain is quite steep but enjoyable and gives a fantastic 360 degree view all around. It is a lovely way to explore Lake Wanaka. Just a small point...there is some unhappiness between the boat operators on the lake about the competition between them all...it is best kept away from guests! We heard a little about it from Davy but had a much worse experience in the afternoons with another guide. Guests really do not need to hear about the soap opera of Wanaka boat operators....it is wholly unnecessary!

We had a fantastic time on this charter, just my fiancé and I. Davy was so accommodating and friendly and we all had a great chat. We were lucky to catch a rainbow trout almost immediately after wetting a line and Davy cooked it up for us. Absolutely beautiful. Would definitely do this again as we had such an amazing day!

We had a great time on the boat and with Davy a lovely host, skipper and fishing instructor! It was the first time fishing for us and we were lucky to catch 3 rainbow trouts. The first one went immediately on the bbq grill provided by Davy and it tasted delicious! We took the other two home for dinner and lunch the next day! ;) Thanks Davey for this unique experience!

Phil and I took our son and his partner and our 2 grandchildren Josh (5) and Ollie (2) on a great cruise with Davy, the very informative owner operator. Davy adjusted the cruise date and time to suit the weather conditions and our schedule. We landed up inside the top of Stevenson's arm where it was lovely and sheltered and we were able to walk over the neck to get 30 km views up the lake. After drinks, food and some water play we set off again in the hope of catching a fish. Very panoramic views all the way, This was a great experience for families and small groups up to 10 people. Another way to see the lake and surrounds for people not able to walk far or short of time. Davy is very flexible and obliging with the time of cruise.
