Te Anau cruise

We enjoyed every minute of this cruise. Visited lovely areas with beautiful scenery. Peter was fantastic, friendly and easy to talk too. We highly recommend to give this a go whilst you're in Te Anau.

Absolutely fantastic!

Fantastic wee cruise around the bay, Peter was full of information and able to speak to everyone as it's smaller groups. I had my 4 year old with me and everyone was really good with her too! The optional lunch was amazing! Great value for price! All in all, 5 stars from us! Would recommend to anyone & will definitely be booking another one on our next trip!

Great Lake trip!

Would recommend this Bay cruise to anyone who didn't want a full day sounds cruise. My husband & I were fortunate enough to be the only ones going at the time & so felt lucky to have this trip to ourselves. Peter was very informative & answered anything we wanted to know. Well done & thank you Peter.
