Wanaka Cruises’ 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 the region.

The Stevenson’s Island cruise every afternoon is two hours and takes you through panoramic mountain scenery to a secluded island beach. The guided walk is just fifteen 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 the 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 about a private charter and create your own adventure! Wānaka Cruises offer packages for parties, BBQ lunches or dinners, hens and stags, birthdays, conferences, reunions, tour groups and locals.
