Mou Waho Island Water Taxi - Wanaka Water Taxis

Escape the crowds and discover the magic of Mou Waho Island.

Highlights

  • Spend 1.5 hours exploring the stunning Mou Waho Island
  • Hike up to a hidden lake
  • Relax on secluded beaches

Where you can find an island, on a lake, on an island, on a lake, on an island on the sea!

Mou Waho Island is a protected nature reserve and is home to many native New Zealand birds including the curious and flightless Weka.

A short walk takes you to the top of the island where you will be exposed to breathtaking panoramic views of the Arethusa pool, Lake Wanaka and its surrounding peaks.

Our water taxi leaves Wanaka Marina twice-daily travelling 15km up Lake Wanaka, passing Mou Tapu Island and the steep cliff of fisherman's cove to Mou Waho Island.

Your friendly and knowledgeable skipper will inform you of the fascinating geology of the alps and the glaciers that created the lake as you travel along its sparkling waters.

Enjoy 1.5 hours exploring the Island and hiking to the hidden lake.

Relaxing adventure.

Loved this trip. The hike up to the look out was a good workout before cooling off in the small lake on the island. Enjoyed our boat trip soaking in all the mountain views. Great adventure if having a day trip to Wanaka. We still had time afterwards to spend time in Wanaka before driving home.

Great afternoon with Wanaka water taxis

We were booked for the following Saturday morning but the company warned us that bad weather might cause postponement so we’re offered Friday afternoon instead. Lovely calm trip with WWT and a fantastic island to explore with only a few others around....don’t miss it.

SUPERB

Family of 5 superb trip up to a little island. My teenage daughter said it was the highlight of her trip so far and we have already been to Queenstown. The hike was steady but easy enough to take my younger son. Well worth going if you are at Wanaka. Highly recommend. Taryn

Awesome trip and good value

Great little boat ride, to enjoy the views around the lake. driver guy was super nice and flexible. Make sure you pack some meat for free communal gas grill and have lunch at the picnic tables. Also, don't forget your swimming trunks to swim to "the island in the lake on the island in the lake on the south island. Fun experience and only a few places in the world you'll ever be able to do this - and it's maybe a 100-150m swim at most, in a very calm lake on the island.
