We did this cruise after a fantastic flight from Wanaka with Southern Alps Air. The commentary was great,the boat comfortable with free refreshments available. The scenery is out of this world, awe dropping, huge cliffs, amazing waterfalls and plenty of wildlife.

If you get the chance don't miss the opportunity to go on this cruise, you won't regret it.

We loved this company and especially the smaller boat. At one of the stops, we were within 2-3 feet of the seals on the rock - you can't get any closer. We also went next to the cliffs and those riding in the front of the boat could be under the waterfall - you had ample warning if you didn't want to be there. I will certainly recommend this company to my travel customers who are planning on visiting New Zealand.

Hello Ken K
Thank you for taking the time to review our cruise. We are stoked that you enjoyed our cruise.
It is a great experience to get up and close to our native wildlife and the size of our boats enable us to provide this for our customers. The smaller boats are also handy if you want to have a good soak under the waterfalls and for those who are not so brave; we have a cover on our top deck so that you can have the full experience without getting wet.
Thanks again from the Team at Mitre Peak Cruises
