Scenic Coves

Our talented Skipper's will nudge your vessel into spectacular bush clad coves where guests can relax and enjoy a meal and drinks, swim, and sunbathe. Go ashore and explore the bush or picnic on the beach.

The numerous bays around Lake Rotoiti ensure that there is always somewhere sheltered to park up and enjoy the serenity, no matter what the weather.


Delicious Meal Options & Licenced Bar

Complement your lake encounter with a meal or beverage from the well stocked bar on the yacht.


We offer a range of fabulous food creations to suit any experience or event.

Geothermal Wonders

Geothermal activity can be viewed in many areas of the lake. Observe steaming fumaroles as we sail by or go ashore and sink your toes into the warm beach pumice sand. You can even soak in the tepid spring water of a natural flowing stream.

Glow Worm Caves

An undeniable favorite for those who love adventure is swimming into one of our caves to experience seeing the glow worms. The caves are waist deep once inside and are a truly unique New Zealand experience.

Hidden Hot Pools

Only accessible by boat, the Manupirua Hot Springs on the edge of the lake provide a beautifully tranquil setting in which to soak in the rejuvenating thermal mineral water. From here you can enjoy panoramic views of lake Rotoiti and picnic on the shore.

Tree Jumping

Challenge yourself to step out over a deep bay on the limb of a Pohutukawa Tree while using the overhead ropes for support and jump into the lake.


Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Try your hand at stand up paddle boarding along the native shorelines and even duck into some natural caves in the cliffs.

Historic Food Storage Caves

Lake Rotoiti has many significant historic sites, some can be seen from the vessel. The crew are happy to share the stories and legends of these special places with guests.


Trout Fishing

Lake Rotoiti is a deep, beautiful lake that consistently produces trophy sized trout throughout the year providing quality fishing suitable for all methods and skill levels. The northern shoreline is bush clad and features some steep cliffs rising directly from the water. This section is only suited to boat fishing. The southern areas offer a range of angling opportunities for fly-fishing from the shore.

Heli and Float Plane Transfers

Arrive in style by helicopter or float plane. We have access to private heli landing sites all around the lake. Alternatively meet us out on the water, as you transfer from float plane to yacht on the water.
