Lake cruises – Mou Waho (3-4hr) 10am, Stevenson’s Island (2hr) 3.00pm and evening cruise (1hr) 5.30 pm. During winter months lake cruises and fishing trips are run on demand with jet boats leaving at 11.30am and 2.30 pm.
During our Hamilton Spins there is some spray on occasions but no you won’t get wet. Cameras are at your own risk due to this occasional spray. There are safe places to use cameras and your driver will let you know when this is. It is a good idea to keep phones and camera secure or in your pocket while travelling at speed and only use when the boat is stopped.
