Take a cruise on Lake Taupo with fabulous views of secluded bays and the spectacular snow capped mountain peaks of the World Heritage Tongariro National Park. The newly refurbished Cruise Cat offers the most comfortable journey on the lake with plenty of room to move about to take in the stunning views. You will have the choice of seating inside or upstairs by the skipper and as we get closer to the Maori Rock Carvings you can go outside to get a close up view.
