Great Lake Taupo Scenic Cruises
It wouldn’t be a trip to Great Lake Taupo without some exploring on the lake or along the mighty Waikato River. A scenic cruise is the perfect way to enjoy the water and Taupo’s stunning vistas.
Spot hidden bays as you glide across crystal clear water on your way out to the famous Maori Carvings at Mine Bay, an impressive ten metres high and only accessible by boat, or cruise up the Waikato River to view the Huka Falls from the water.
There are plenty of different companies at the Taupo boat harbour who offer cruising on the lake. Go sailing on the Barbary or Fearless, or motor along on the Ernest Kemp or with Chris Jolly Outdoors, or alternatively hire a Taupo charter boat.
Relax with a drink while you enjoy the scenery and if you’re here during the warmer months be sure to take your togs for a dip over the side of the boat. Sunset cruises are an amazing experience, kick back with a glass of wine, watch the sun sink over the horizon and listen to the water lap against the side of the boat.
Scheduled daily scenic cruises around the Northern bays of Lake Taupo, visiting the Maori rock carvings. Full commentary on the area of Lake Taupo, local and Maori history and management of trout fishery. Free tea/coffee and hot, homemade muffin.
To voyage on Barbary is to embark on a wonderful, unique experience, exploring Great Lake Taupo. This 1926 classic yacht recently refurbished, non-polluting and quiet, is perfectly equipped to provide you with a truly unforgettable experience.
