Excellent Friendly Service

Booked this cruise at the last minute for two people (I was not there). The report back was an excellent service with a great knowledge of the area and a fantastic bush walk included which is a little different to your usual cruise. Although it was cold, the whole experience was wonderful.

Hi Sandra, Thanks for you kind comments. It was great to meet both your father & husband on their 'boys road trip'. I enjoyed their company & showing them some of the lake . Peter - Cruise Te Anau.

Amazing Cruise on Lake Te Anau

I would highly recommend Te Anau Discovery Cruise to anyone going to Te Anau. Peter was awesome he kept me informed of what was happening on the day and was a very friendly genuine person who was knowledgeable about the Te Anau area the lake and the fiords. We saw beautiful waterfalls and went for a walk to the Hidden Lake which was stunning. The cruise made our trip to Te Anau a memorable one with lots of stunning photos of the area. We stopped for a cuppa and had yummy caramel muffins. Thank you, Peter, for an amazing trip. P.S. we also got to see the Takahe in the bird sanctuary as recommended by Peter.

Kiwi Experience

A wonderfully laid back cruise up Lake Te Anau on Peter's beautifully maintained old boat. Having done the cruise on Milford Sound as well I can say that the scenery here is not as awe inspiring, but this cruise is much better value if you only do one.

A must do in Te Anau

When Peter noticed that weather may prevent the cruise, he sentan email suggesting an alternative. The day was perfect, the cruise well managed and his knowledge is just great. We highly recommend spending the time to take in everything that Lake Te Anau offers on this cruise and not another.
