Departing from Manapouri with a short cruise across Lake Manapouri, a coach will then take you across Wilmot Pass, travelling on a sub-alpine road through dense rainforest before finally arriving at Deep Cove, where you’ll be met by the crew and the majestic Mariner vessel.


Designed along the lines of a traditional scow, the Mariner blends old world charm with modern comforts that include spacious viewing decks, a dining saloon with a fully licensed bar and an observation lounge, so you can cruise through some of New Zealand’s most stunning scenery wihtout missing any of the action.


Enjoy a delicious three-course buffet dinner prepared by the onboard chef and mingle with fellow travellers as you savour some of the fine wines at the licensed bar and if the skies are clear in the evening, spend some time on the upper deck gazing at the stars.


This truly is one of the most unique experiences on offer in New Zealand and with spots selling fast, the best time to book is now!
