“A Must Do”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Being locals sometimes we take for granted some of our wonderful attractions, my husband & I took the Lunch Million Dollar Cruise to the Hilton Hotel at Labour Weekend. This would have to be the best value Cruise in Queenstown, for $59pp we got a beautiful cruise around Frankton Arm to the stunning setting at the Hilton Hotel, then dined on a 3 course lunch. Food was fabulous, staff at Hilton were lovely. Wayne the boats Captain (Skipper) did a great commentary.

A absolute must see.

“Million Dollar Cruise well worth the $25”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

When you arrive in Queenstown, be sure and take this 1 1/2 hour cruise. It's a great way to see Queenstown from various perspectives - you'll pass some lovely homes, the mountain views ar terrific and the water a beautiful blue.

I'm sure all the captains are great, but if you're lucky enough to have Wayne, the co-owner of the company, I'm sure you'll really enjoy it. His commentary is terrific.

“Million Dollar Cruise Queenstown”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Don't miss this ultimate lake cruise when you visit Queenstown. Wayne our Captain was fantastic and so informative and obliging. It was worth the money and talk about a clean boat - wonderful! Our family so appreciated the journey and all the facts and history Wayne told us. I have been visiting Queenstown since I was a child but still learnt new information. Highly recommended by our family and thanks again Million Dollar Cruises - you truly live up to your name.

“Great trip, good price”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Decided impromptu to take a boat cruise around the lake and picked million dollar because the woman at the docks you got tickets from was super nice and friendly (and a local). Her son was the boat captain. The trip was excellent, calm although windy. We sat outside the whole time for better views and when the wind was up occassionally it was hard to hear the captain's narration but that was no big deal. Nice way to take in the scenery of Queenstown.
