Kick back and relax as you cruise into the sunset and journey to Mine Bay to see the incredible Maori Rock Carvings. Explore the crystal blue waters of Lake Taupo on board an eco-friendly yacht and get up close to the incredible site as you learn about the history and significance from your guide.
Get ready for a magical evening on the beautiful waters of Lake Taupo, sailing amongst a backdrop of picturesque landscapes and to the famous Maori Rock Carvings in Mine Bay. Watch as the beautiful lake with its surrounding bays and snow-capped mountains turn into the colours of sunset as dusk begins to set in. Sit back and relax with a drink in hand and music in the background as you sail to the beautiful site. Upon arrival, you'll be blown away by one of New Zealand's most spectacular contemporary artworks, standing at an impressive 14 metres tall. Get up close to the work of art as your expert guide explains its history and significance to the Maori culture. During the summer, you'll enjoy a swimming stop to cool off in the water.

We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
