Owner description: Experience the best of the Rotorua Lakes aboard the luxury sailing catamaran Tiua on the fresh waters of Lake Rotoiti. Pure Cruise offers a genuine, personal sailing experience exploring the native bays and coves of this beautiful lake under sail. Fish for Rainbow Trout, soak in the lake edge thermal pools and hear stories & legends of the local Maori, all accompanied by fine wine and great food. Pure Cruise is an off the beaten track indulgence that is unmistakably New Zealand.

We experienced this on the lake to the natural hot springs and it was wonderful!! I would not call this a Catamaran but more of luxury small yacht. It was beautiful and so clean. Easy to move around inside and out. Fantastic service with coffee, tea and sandwiches and conversation. Mat is an excellent and experienced pilot/skipper and we had the best afternoon! Thank you.

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.

Best meal out hands down! Best tourist attraction ever! What a wonderful way to spend a balmy summer evening cruising beautiful Lake Rotoiti taking in our spectacular surroundings with a group of friends. The catamaran is a luxurious vessel with plenty of space to chill out, whether relaxing in the bean bags on deck or reclining in doors. Our skipper Matt along with crew Flic made our visit totally relaxing and enjoyable. Matt's a pretty fantastic cook and Flic provided great service with attention to detail. No request was too big, with a swim stop in a secluded bay, blankets supplied on deck for those feeling a chill and offers of food delivered to those feeling just too relaxed to move. Thanks again to Matt and the team for providing a memorable night out.

A group 25 of us, all locals wanted to experience something different ,so we joined Mat and his team on the beautiful Lake Rotoiti for an evening experience better than none. We cruised the lake and saw all the beautiful surrounding scenery on the most beautiful catamaran with all the most up to date facilities, then we pulled up in a secluded sunny bay for a swim and dinner,which was deliscious, and throughly enjoyed by all. A beautiful way to spend an evening with attentive and experienced staff,thank you Mat from all of us, much appreciated for a wonderful experience on Pure Cruise.
