A Boat Cruise on beautiful Lake Taupo is one of the best ways to experience New Zealand's largest lake.

Many boat cruises visit Lake Taupo's fascinating Maori Bay rock carvings - accessible only by water - providing full commentary on the culural significance of the carvings and the lake itself. If you're a keen angler, choose a boat cruise that also offers trout fishing - Lake Taupo is known for its trophy-sized trout. The Otunui Paddleboat is a unique cruising experience where you'll explore both the lake and the Mangakino Stream. If you're hopping on a boat cruise in summer, you'll be able to take a dip in Lake Taupo's fresh, pristine waters.
