Boat Cruises & Sailing

Cruise, sail and explore on Lakes Wānaka and Lake Hāwea 

Two lakes, surrounded by the most incredible alpine mountain scenery, make the Wānaka region one of the best places in the South Island to go boating.

Discover beaches, bays and bush-clad islands, and often you’ll have them all to yourself. Luxury launches, private cruises, and yachts, are available for hire to get you out on the water. 

A short 15-minute drive from Wānaka is Lake Hāwea which offers boaties and fishermen the kind of solitude often longed for, but rarely found.
