Fun for all ages

I took my 4 year old here for an explore and picnic and we both enjoyed it. Tim was very friendly and gave us some interesting history of the island. A must do when visiting Wanaka! I look forward to checking out another island sometime!

Gem Boat Ride

A Gem of an outing on Lake Wanaka. Awesome to look back at the town from on the lake and enjoy a walk and hear the history of Ruby Island.

Nice little cruise

This was a very good yacht that took us to Ruby island. Ruby island is a small island in the middle of the lake. We had a walk on the island which has good views.
