    Great time & value for money doing this adventure as a group."

  • Best Wanaka Activity

    "The best activity we did whilst in Wanaka. Micheal took us on an exhilarating ride but balanced it off brilliantly with knowledge about the lake and Clutha river. Would do again at the drop off a hat!"

  • Quick and efficient service, friendly easy going staff

    "The 2 girls that helped us with the kayaks were awsome so friendly and nothing was a problem! When we got back from our 1hr paddle she let our 2 boys keep their life jackets on so they could swim in the shallows and jump off the dock for another hour. The boys loved it!"

WATERWAY SUSTAINABILITY

Fresh water is our greatest natural asset. It is crucial to our way of life, our environment and our economy.

We value it for recreation and spiritual wellbeing. For Ngai Tahu, the rivers and lakes are considered ancestors. Each waterway has its own mauri (life force), creating a deep connection between Māori people and the natural environment.

Generations have built a way of life around our waterways, boating, fishing and swimming in New Zealand’s pristine aquatic environments. Whether you live in the city or the country, water quality matters to all of us and we have a responsibility to ensure that protect our greatest asset.

FAQ's

Times vary with the seasons. In winter on a fine day you can expect to find us down at the lake front from 10am to 4pm Tuesday -Sunday whereas in the peak of summer you can find us there every day 9am-6pm.
We recommend sunscreen all year round and dressing for the weather, but for information specific to your trip check out the FAQ on your specific activities page.
Yes, if you are planning to arrive in time for a trip then it’s best you let us know

Sometimes guests arrive underprepared for their trip, checking in early allows time for us to recommend another layer, return loose item to your car and ensure you are ready, also some trips have a waiver to read prior to departure. The trips leave on the hour and can not wait; for those who turned up on time and ready for their trip, it is unfair to make them wait longer. If you arrive in time for your trip but not ready to go, i.e. not dressed appropriately for the weather, you may not be allowed to board.
There are lots of parks along the lake front but please allow time to find one, especially in the peak of the season as there may be a shortage.
No, you can safely take your own camera on most of your activities and our crew are nearly always able to take a moment to take your picture, you only need ask.
You can still book and be placed on the waiting list; we will get in touch and see if we can make arrangements to you on the trip you want.
