Boat Cruises & Sailing

Cruise, sail and explore on Lakes Wanaka and Lake Hawea 

Two lakes, surrounded by the most incredible alpine mountain scenery, make the Wanaka 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 Wanaka is Lake Hawea which offers boaties and fishermen the kind of solitude often longed for, but rarely found.
