Spend 1.5 hours cruising Lake Wakatipu and enjoy unobstructed views as you go.

As you cruise, take some time to explore the wheelhouse and chat with the skipper. They will provide English commentary and there is Chinese commentary available for groups on request. Around the ship, there are cruise information handouts in English, Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, German, Spanish and French.
