The ultimate relaxation on the beautiful waters of Rotoiti. Matt, the skipper shared some magic spots with us: hot water bathing, ancient caves, not to mention his pleasant company. Great memories for us all to take home! Thanks Matt.

My husband and I went out with Matt for a few hours on Lake Rotouiti and I can say with my travel industry experience l, this is the best tour/experience in Rotorua! The story of his beautiful catamaran is a fantastic one that he had a photo book documenting on board. Definitely have a look at it and get him to tell you some stories about the journey! Absolutely amazing!
We did a little of everything, swam, learned to sail a bit, relaxed in the bean bags with beverages. I highly reccomend this experience to everyone as its perfect for couples, families or groups!

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.
