Cruises depart from the Taupo Boat Harbour.

Three Hours - A voyage from Taupo Boat Harbour on the Waikato River to Tapuaeharuru Bay and onto Mine Bay to see the Maori Carvings. Venturing 40 minutes south following the eastern shores to the Horomatangi Reef. The reef formed from the most recent eruption 1820 years ago. Visit Motutaiko Island also of volcanic origins. In historical times the Ngati Tuwharetoa Tribe used the island as a fortified stronghold. Several caves on the Northern side contain burial sites which are considered sacred and tapu.

Five Hours - Cruising via the Horomotangi Reef and Motutaiko Island we venture to the Karangahape Cliffs at the southern end of the Great Lake Taupo. At 1300 feet they are the highest cliffs on the lake. So sheer are they, the water at the base is 400 feet deep. Then across to the western shores to Waihaha Bay, the Otupotu Water Fall and returning via Boat Harbour in Kawakawa Bay and the Maori Carvings in Mine Bay.
