Took the 11am cruise today captained by Max. The commentary was full of information and was funny. It was very enjoyable and a perfect way to spend the morning. I loved the views of the mountains and the lake. Recommend this to anyone.

This is one the best value for money attractions in Queenstown. Very casual relaxing experience and a highly entertaining host Captain Wayne. Very informative and there's even a kids zone where kids can holler all they like and you won't disturb anyone. Highly recommended.

Loved this cruise. It was the best value for money deal in Queenstown at $39 for 90 minute trip around the lake. Entertaining commentary from our Captain. One can get photos of yourself taken by him at the wheel for NO Extra cost. Loved it
