What a Beautiful trip! We took the 11am cruise and sat up top for most of it. The captain was very knowledgeable about Queenstown and its history. His narrating was very insightful and funny too. Such a pretty lake with outstanding views. Wasn’t boring even for a second! A great experience for all ages and great value for money.

I have no complain about this cruise. Cheap ($25), clean, informative, steady and you can spend one and half hour to explore other side of Queenstown. Our sailor is Max, a informative, helpful and great personality. He drove us around the Lake and explain all things about Queenstown what it was and what it is meant today. We go closely to the bridge because the water arose and make the cruise able to get closer.

I just wonder where other cruise go. We departed not so long after the steamship Earnslaw's depart. But it seems that this two cruise went to different direction. If you want to explore the other side of Queenstown, you can reach by this cruise. But if you are willing to explore the forest, river, or greener part of the lake, it seems other cruise is suit to you.

Had a few hours spare and decided to go on this cruise with my wife. The price was incredibly reasonable at only $25 per person and the views of the surrounding lake and mountains is stunning. Peter our captain is a Queenstown native and very knowledgable. All this combined with a beautiful 32 degree(Celsius) day made for a fantastic experience.

This is excellent value. The trip itself is relaxing, and the boat clean and well maintained. Max, our captain was informative and friendly. I liked the honour bar system for drinks and nibbles.

A wonderful trip - well worth the very reasonable price. Peter, the captain, was full of very interesting facts about Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. I am interested in real estate so the excursion was of particular interest to me. Keep up the good work.
