"Fantastic afternoon cruising and swimming whilst on a family reunion. Everyone had a great time with wonderful crew"

"I loved this private cruise even though it was on a rainy day. We were welcomed on board with hot tea/coffee & biscuits as well as blankets to warm us up. We sailed around the lake to the thermal pools where some of dared the weather to put our bathers on & enjoy the heat. Some of us also took to sliding off the jetty into the very cold lake just for some extra fun!!"

"We booked a afternoon cruise on the Tiua to cross Lake Rotoiti and visit both the hot pools and geothermal rivers. Our boat captain and crew welcomed us with open arms and made all feel comfortable on the water. We enjoyed light air sailing, sipped some bubbles, visited the hot pools, and jumped into the lake. The afternoon was memorable and a perfect start to our 2 week holiday in New Zealand."

"Each year our Bookclub goes for a sail on Pure Cruise as a special treat. It is always a wonderful evening. So comfortable and relaxed and a great way to catch up. Shilo, Antonia and Kahui did a fantasyjob sailing and looking after us all."

"This was a great excursion! Pure Cruise was a comfortable ride on a catamaran. We went to the hot pools and spent time. It felt secluded. The catamaran is well-kept. It's a small group. The crew is helpful. The boat has bean bags. I left a Yelp review for them, but I guess Trip Advisor is where ppl leave their remarks. This is worth it in New Zealand. Fun."

"My daughters and I spent the day with Pure Cruise sailing on the lake in Rotorua. We had a fabulous time! The crew was fantastic, and the boat was beautiful. We sailed around and ended up at a geo thermal pool where we soaked in the pools for a while before boarding the boat again. Truly was a highlight of our trip and I highly recommend Pure Cruise NZ! They are awesome!!"

"We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon on this beautiful Catamaran on Lake Rotoiti, It was part of a day trip from our Cruise and it was exceptional. The skipper and crew were amazing - very helpful and informative and we also had a delicious afternoon tea which also included a beer or wine. We hope to return to NZ and will most certainly look to do a half day on this lovely lake on this wonderful cruiser."

"We spent a lovely day with Matt and Lou with this excursion offered through Royal Caribbean, and the entire experience was FANTASTIC. Staff was wonderful and professional, the vessel was very clean and very nice, and it was a beautiful sail. Well worth it and you will not be disappointed."
