    About The Lakeland Queen

    The Lakeland Queen was built locally in 1986 and modeled on the famous Mississipi riverboats making her ideal for the shallower waters of Lake Rotorua. A genuine stern wheel paddle steamer, she is powered by a 240 hp Cummins diesel engine driving an 8 bladed stern paddle. A true icon of the region the recently refurbished "Grand Old Lady of the Lake" can cater for up to 250 seated guests and is a real must do during your Rotorua Visit.

    We booked the deluxe lunch for our 20th Anniversary, this was a truly special occasion, the Captain, Waitresses and Chef were far above expectation. From the time we arrive, through lunch and the boat ride we had an awesome time. The food was superbly presented and equal to that of a five star hotel. Our children were entertained and the waitresses made a special effort to assist with the children. We highly recommend this cruise and will be visiting again soon! Thank you!
