Come and join Wanaka Water Taxi on a trip to their favourite place on Lake Wanaka; Mou Waho Island! Where you can find an island, on a lake, on an island, on a lake, on an island on the sea!

Mou Waho Island is a protected nature reserve and is home to many native New Zealand birds including the curious and flightless Weka. A short walk takes you to the top of the island where you will be exposed to breathtaking panoramic views of the Arethusa pool, Lake Wanaka and its surrounding peaks.

Wanaka Water Taxi leaves Wanaka Marina daily travelling 15km up Lake Wanaka, passing Mou Tapu Island and the steep cliff of Fisherman's Cove to Mou Waho Island. Our friendly and knowledgeable skipper will inform you of the fascinating geology of the alps and the glaciers that created the lake as you travel along its sparkling waters.

Stay for 1.5 hours on the island to explore it at your own pace before heading back to shore. 

Trips depart at 10am and 2pm daily. Take $30 off all trips and kids go free* using promocode: Kiwispecial.
