Lake Cruises

Adventure Wanaka offers skippered excursions aboard our 6.5 metre comfortable boat on the crystal-clear waters of Lake Wanaka throughout the four seasons.

Enjoy the early warmth of spring weather. Soak up the summer sun and take a dive from the deck to cool off. Admire the spectacular autumn colours. Rest your ski-weary legs in winter and marvel at the snow-clad backdrop of the surrounding mountains. The boat is fully enclosed and well heated for winter excursions.

Lake Wanaka is New Zealand’s fourth largest lake, spanning 45km in length and reaching depths of up to 300m. There are beaches, bays and bush clad islands just waiting to be explored.
