“little secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

If you can manage to get over to the hotpools on the other side of the lake DO SO.. they are like stepping back into the 50s but the water is clean the views in the evening are idyllic. The Okere Falls Store is also a great place to top up supplies of goodies and enjoy good coffee.

“wonderful cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

When in Rotorua we did a cruise with Splashncatch run by Grant. There was 4 Adults and two Children. What a marvellous cruise. Went over to the Hot pools. We all had a wonderful day and would recommend this cruise to all families when you are visiting Rotorua. Grant was great with the children. Just lovely out on the Rotoiti Lake.

“Family-friendly Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is a great lake for the whole family to enjoy. Pristine water and 13 kilometres aquatic pleasure. Stop by the thermal pools (ask your guide) and you'll enjoy a truly authentic Kiwi experience.

“Beautiful lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Go to the Rotoiti hot pools- charter, beg, borrow a boat and make a day or even overnight on this beautiful lake. Simply magic. Try Okawa Bay resort to hire a boat.
