The boat ride was very relaxing and didn't take long. We could stay in the main cabin or go out on the decks. When we got to the caves, we were broken into small groups and taken through the caves to see fish and eels in the water, and learn of the glowworm cycle. Tea and coffee was provided when we were finished.

We had a relaxing cruise and the scenery was fantastic . Peter, the owner operator, provided great insight on the environment and the local situation. This is a very personal cruise experience and Peter is a great host with a lovely boat. We highly recommend this cruise.

We had a lovely time with Peter on the cruise. We would definitely recommend this for people looking for a more unique and customized boat tour experience over the larger, mass-market operations. Peter is very attentive and willing to personalize the service so that the tour is flexible and not held to a strict schedule or time limit at various scenic points. We got all the great pictures we wanted from all sorts of angles! Overall just a great experience.

Peter, the owner, will make your trip very special. We had arranged for a 2.5 hour tour of Lake Te Anau. Since Peter did not have an afternoon trip and we were not pressed for time, he extended our trip to in excess of 4 hours. Not only did he give us a super tour of the fiords, he also took us into the wilderness area. In the wilderness area he educated us about many of the plants and the wildlife. This was a wonderful experience.
