In winter, the 1.30pm scenic cruise offers a 'Taste of Taupo' where our crew will explain trout fishing techniques on Lake Taupo and set up a fishing line. You might even be able to sample some trout if we catch one. We generally do, so this is one trip you shouldn’t miss!

Free tea/coffee and homemade muffin on board.

Live informative commentary and informative video shown.

Cruises depart daily at 10.30am and 1.30pm with a 5pm cruise in summer.
