Discover More

Lake Wanaka is unique in having multiple islands that offer our visitors intriguing history, conservation insights and immersion in outstanding natural beauty. Wanaka Cruises take you there daily with guided island walks included.

Our guides will take you to the top of one of New Zealand's most remarkable bird sanctuaries with a natural glacial lake on top. Drink in the bird song as you scan the panoramic views of the Southern Alps. The Mou Waho Island cruise and guided nature walk is a 'must do' for everyone that visits our region.

 Have the kids or not much time? Then a short cruise to Ruby Island with a short-guided photo walk included is loads of fun!

Our Stevensons Island cruise every afternoon is two hours and takes you through panoramic mountain scenery to a secluded island beach. The guided walk is just 15 minutes on an easy grade for more outstanding views and a photo opportunity. Cruise back with afternoon tea and enjoy the company of your fellow travelers and our local crew.

Do not forget the Happy Hour Cruise every evening for a sociable pre-dinner cruise with wines/beers and cheese boards included.

Of course, if you are visiting in a group you can ask us about a private charter and create your own adventure! We offer packages for parties, BBQ lunches or dinners, hens and stags, birthdays, conferences, reunions, tour groups and most importantly locals!
