Our year round Western Bay Taster cruise departs from the Kinloch marina which is just a short 15 minute drive from Taupo township. Kinloch is the gateway to the remote Western Bays of Lake Taupō where there is so much untouched beauty and hidden gems to be discovered that it has to be one of the top 10 things to do in Taupō. Whether it's a waterfall obscured by a rocky outcrop bursting forth from a stream swollen by recent rain, the impressive Otupoto falls or a ravine to nose the boat into to discover its hidden secrets, we can guarantee you'll love this cruise.
